Updates: Web accessibility lawsuits

Some household names are finding themselves subject to accessibility complaints and lawsuits — raising awareness for people who might not be familiar with digital accessibility and highlighting that lawsuits can hit any industry.

The common thread? The ADA applies to websites!

Digital accessibility is a cost with no benefit, right?

There is still a myth out there that accessibility is a cost with little or no benefit. Here are just a few of the ways digital accessibility is an investment, not a cost.

  • Accessibility is an investment in your brand.
  • Accessibility is an investment in your customer.
  • Accessibility is an investment in cleaner technology.
  • Accessibility is an investment in compliance.

Our best advice is that it’s always easier to decide to make your website or app accessible before a complaint or lawsuit decides for you. If you have any questions about whether or how the ADA or other laws apply to your digital presence, please talk to us.
