Many website owners understand that their online presence needs to meet the compliant regulations of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), but many are unsure exactly what that means.
Recently, Beyonce's Official website was hit with a lawsuit for violating the Americans with Disabilities Act due to the website denying visually impaired users equal access to on-site features.
The problems one New York woman encountered, which prompted the class action lawsuit, included:
• The website contained an exclusively visual interface
• No Alt-Text was coded into images
• Lack of Prompting Information on Forms
• Denial of Keyboard Access
• Lack of Accessible Dropdown Menu
Every website should comply with ADA to accommodate those with disabilities, but being ADA compliant goes beyond just adhering to the law - it's ensuring you create the best on-site experience you can for EVERY user that visits. Even Beyonce needs some help in this department.
