ADA-compliant web design services is the practice of creating and developing websites that adhere to the guidelines set forth by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and the standards in the Website Content Accessibility Guidelines. pondSoup specializes in ADA compliant website design services, please contact us for a consultation.
To ensure ADA compliance, web design services typically focus on the following key areas:
This involves making websites perceivable, operable, understandable, and robust for users with disabilities. It includes considerations such as providing alternative text for images, using proper heading structure, offering keyboard navigation options, ensuring color contrast for readability, and implementing accessible forms.
Assistive Technology Compatibility
ADA-compliant websites are designed to be compatible with assistive technologies such as screen readers, screen magnifiers, and alternative input devices (for example using a keyboard to navigate a site instead of a trackpad or mouse). This involves properly labeling navigation elements and form fields, ensuring logical reading order, and providing text alternatives for non-text content.
Navigation and Structure
Websites should have clear and consistent navigation menus, logical page structures, and descriptive link text. These elements help users understand the organization and content of the website.
ADA-compliant web design takes into account the accessibility of multimedia elements like videos and audio files. Providing captions or transcripts for videos, audio descriptions for visual content, and controls for users to adjust media playback ensures accessibility for all users.
ADA compliance includes responsive design, ensuring that websites are accessible and usable across different devices and screen sizes. Responsive design allows users with disabilities to access and interact with the website regardless of the device they use.
Testing and Validation
ADA-compliant web design services typically involve rigorous testing and validation processes. This ensures that the website meets the necessary accessibility standards and can be accessed by users with disabilities effectively.
