Become WCAG compliant and prevent lawsuits.
WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) is an international standard for website accessibility.
Businesses, government agencies and other public-facing organizations are expected, under U.S. law, to meet minimum accessibility standards.
Failing to meet these standards creates the possibility of being sued.
Businesses and non-profits can benefit from WCAG compliance because they will:
- Also be ADA and Section 508 compliant. Guidance for all new accessibility requirements originates from WCAG.
- Reduce the risk of lawsuits. Ever since Netflix was sued by the NAD (National Association of the Deaf) in 2011, companies have been clamoring to meet ADA requirements and accessibility standards.
- Increase potential market share. 25% of U.S. adults (about 61 million people) have some type of disability. Becoming WCAG compliant enhances your ability to serve a broader audience.
