Learn About Web Accessibility Compliance

In today’s world, the inability to navigate the internet is debilitating. And if your digital services aren’t accessible to everyone, you’re effectively shutting out up to 61 million people, or one in four U.S. adults living with a disability.

Many businesses, organizations, and government agencies often don’t learn about digital accessibility compliance until they’re served a lawsuit or legal demand letter, making understanding how accessibility laws and legislature apply to digital information, communications, and websites critical. Navigating through these laws can be confusing, but AudioEye is here to help.

Learn more about how the different regulations apply to your website below, and how AudioEye's hybrid accessibility solutions can keep you on the path of compliance.

ADA Web Accessibility

Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires businesses to make “reasonable modifications” to serve individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life, including the internet. Get a deeper understanding of web accessibility compliance standards and the ADA’s regulations.

WCAG Web Accessibility

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) are a set of global web standards that aim to make the internet a more inclusive and accessible space for all. While WCAG isn’t a regulation, it is the most common standard for U.S. courts to reference when accessing compliance under accessibility legislation.

AODA Web Accessibility

The Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, or AODA, aims to identify and remove physical and virtual access barriers for people with disabilities. This legislature applies specifically to government bodies, non-profit organizations, and commercial organizations in Ontario with at least one employee.

Section 508 Web Accessibility

Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act requires federal, state, county, municipal authorities, and contractors to federal agencies to ensure equal access to digital information and communications to individuals with disabilities.
