The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination based on disability. Specifically, the ADA requires businesses to make reasonable modifications to their premises and provide auxiliary aids and services to ensure effective communication with individuals with disabilities.

This landmark legislation made it unlawful for businesses that serve the public to discriminate against people with disabilities in every aspect of their operations, from the physical building itself to employment practices. It also made it illegal to provide information about services, goods, and accommodations through a website in a manner that is not accessible to people with disabilities.

The website is one place where this can happen. If your site isn't accessible to all users then you're technically breaking the law! This blog post will guide you in learning how to meet ADA website compliance standards so your site is accessible for everyone.

You're aware that your website must be ADA compliant, but where do you begin? We'll give you the lowdown. Check out our new web accessibility standards guide.
