It’s is no doubt obvious from looking at the recent articles above that not having a ADA & WCAG compliant website can have you in quite a bit of legal trouble. Many website owners are not aware of the ADA (Americans with Disability Act) Website accessibility laws. 

Never the less ingorance will not save you. It is your resposibility as a business owner to ensure that everything that represents your business is up to the required standards, and is in compliance with all applicable laws. The core function of this legislation is to make sure that people have acccess to your products and services offered on your website and is able to interact and perform the same functions regardless is they have a disability or not. This might come as a shock to many of us but,there is a whole marketplace out there of people who are blind visually impaired or have some type of disability. That is why the ADA Website Compliance Laws were put into effect to ensure fair access to everyone.

In the last few years and most recently since the begining of the COVID-19 pandemic, being able to function properly in the online market place and has become essential.   Many if not all day to day activities are now being conducted online seeing as though we are not able to walk into many of the businesses that we are used to to recieve service or make purchases.
