Web Search Pros Shares Key Factors About ADA Website Compliance And Liability
In a recent public service announcement, Web Search Pros shared information about Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) website compliance. The company shared that ADA-related lawsuits are piling up.

Huntington Beach, CA – February 27, 2020 – Web Search Pros, a website design company based in Huntington Beach, CA, recently shared startling statistics about lawsuits related to ADA website compliance. According to Web Search Pros, federal and state lawsuits are increasing at alarming rates for companies whose websites are not ADA compliant. The company mentioned that in 2017, there was a total of 700 lawsuits related to ADA issues. In 2019, that number jumped to 12,000. Experts indicate that in 2020, that number will increase to over 100,000. Web Search Pros stated that companies need to make a concerted effort to ensure that their websites are ADA-compliant.

Web Search Pros stressed that there are no shortcuts when it comes to ADA compliance. The company mentioned that many businesses make hollow gestures toward ADA compliance, only to wind up getting sued. According to Web Search Pros, companies must ensure that their websites are accessible for everyone. Web Search Pros mentioned that this concept is the foundation of accessibility. Web Search Pros indicated that full ADA website compliance means that users with all of the following conditions can access and use the site:

  • Vision Impairment
  • Hearing Impairment
  • Motor Skill Impairment
  • Cognitive Disabilities
  • Photosensitive Seizures

According to Web Search Pros, these are just a few of the most common conditions that prevent people from accessing websites. A fully ADA accessible website accounts for all conditions and impairments.

Web Search Pros went on to share some helpful tips for companies that want to make their websites ADA compliant, thus avoiding costly lawsuits. Web Search Pros cautioned that companies should make sure their website is “keyboard-friendly,” meaning that all features of the site can be accessed without the use of a mouse. Web Search Pros also stated that text should be added to all images and that colors used in images should be chosen carefully, to accommodate colorblind users (9% of males are colorblind).

Web Search Pros also indicated that websites should not use tables for anything except tabular data. The reason for this is that tables can be difficult to read for users who have vision impairment. Related to vision impairment: websites should use resizable text (provided that it doesn’t break the site). The company mentioned that these steps can greatly reduce the risk of lawsuits for most companies.
