While the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) does not explicitly mention website compliance, today, many courts are ruling that the Internet is considered a “place of public accommodation,” as defined in Title III of the ADA. As a result, thousands of private companies are facing legal action from plaintiffs claiming an inaccessible website is an ADA Title III violation. To protect yourself from an ADA web accessibility-related lawsuit, ensure your content is fully accessible to individuals of all abilities as defined by Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 AA success criteria.
