Website Accessibility Remediation

    According to ADA title III, every business website design has to be accessible to people with disabilities, or it will be at risk of being sued and facing unnecessary legal expenses.

    We recommend the use of our AI and machine learning web accessibility solution to solve this problem. According to our research, this is the most affordable and simple solution on the market today.

    In most cases, the websites that use our service become ADA and WCAG 2.1 compliant within 48 hours of installation.

    Why Web Accessibility Matters

    What is accessible?

    Technically speaking, accessibility is defined by the requirements laid out by Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and it’s often conflated with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

    Non-technically, it’s giving someone with a disability, like limited or no sight or hearing, the ability to experience all elements of your website. For example, someone without sight is not able to see images or form fields on your website, so they need alternative text to inform as to the content of each image. Someone without hearing cannot listen to a narrated video, so they need captions.

    How is accessibility evaluated?

    To determine whether a site is accessible, we use a checklist called the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1, or WCAG, created by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). They have three levels: A, AA, and AAA. As of this writing, to be considered accessible, a website has to meet WCAG 2.1 AA.

    How important is it?

    Most non-governmental websites are *not* completely accessible. In a sense, any website that does not meet the criteria for a compliant website could be a target. In fact, in most cases, unless “Section 508 compliance” was listed as a project requirement, most websites out there are not compliant, and therefore a potential target.

    How do I solve it?

    We have a really great website solution that brings a site into compliance with Section 508 almost immediately. Where we used to have to manually monitor a site, then manually fix all issues, then manually recheck a site periodically, we now use this service to handle it all.

    How much does website accessibility cost?

    Website accessibility does come at a cost. To hire a web accessibility company to completely redesign your website with accessibility first can run you $10,000-$15,000. While that number seems high, it is much better than the average lawsuit settlement of up to $75,000.

    We understand that this is still out of reach for most business owners, and that is why our service harnesses the power of AI to make websites accessible and compliant starting at just $490 per year.
