ADA Compliance: A Beginner’s Checklist

2 mins read

Ensuring your website is ADA compliant is not just important (as it prevents any legal backlash), but also beneficial (as it broadens your audience). The current best way to go about being accessible is to follow the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG, for short).

But this comes with further complications: Should you follow WCAG 1.0, 2.0, or 2.1? And should the level of compliance be A, AA, or AAA? The WCAG source document is long, very technical, and relatively difficult to navigate through, read, and understand. This makes accessibility quite a task for anyone.

This is why we have come up with a quick ADA compliance checklist that helps you cover most of the key aspects of accessibility as a good headstart.

(Please note that this is not the complete ADA compliance website checklist. This is just a collection of the most important aspects of the guidelines, to make this short and to the point. The separate sections are provided for ease of reference, and are not exactly the same as the ones provided on the WCAG source document.)
