Digital Accessibility Compliance Overview
Navigating the legal landscape of digital accessibility.
Every day, more and more companies are facing legal action because their website isn’t accessible for people with disabilities. Thousands of companies. Regardless of size. Across all industries. Including household names like Beyoncé and Domino’s. In fact, as reported by Seyfarth Shaw, approximately 2,250 ADA Title III federal lawsuits were filed in 2018, nearly tripling the federal lawsuits filed in the previous year with no signs of slowing in 2019.
You might be asking yourself, “What is ADA Title III?” Or “how do I know if my website is accessible?” You might even be wondering what website accessibility even means. If so, you’re not alone. The fact is, the rule of law can be confusing.
