Kahl Consultants Make My Website More Accessible

Did you know that your website may fall under requirements pertaining to disabled visitors?

Any brick-and-mortar business considered a public space must comply with the American Disabilities Act (ADA). Through the ADA Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) this extends to websites as well. The WCAG version 2.2 guidelines are now called W3C Recommended and are valid worldwide.

  • WCAG compliance is required by the ADA.
  • If you're not careful, you can leave your business open to lawsuits.
  • It has benefits that increase revenue.

The first step is to install a plugin

For WordPress websites, the WP Accessibility plugin installs a floating widget with which the user can adjust contrast and font sizes. It does not make your site compatible with ADA accessibility guidelines but it is better to have some compliance than to have none.

Most websites should strive to follow ADA WCAG 2.2 conformance level AA:

There are two ways to conform:

  1. Manual - revamp your website with a fully ADA-compatible site
  2. Automated - install a tool such as an ADA Plugin.
