Credit Union ADA Website Design
Federal regulations require businesses to make their websites equally accessible for individuals with disabilities as a website is for individuals without disabilities. Much like how the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires a business to make their physical location accessible for disabled individuals via wheelchair ramps and/or elevators, the ADA has been updated to include an organization's website and/or app.
Organizations are facing potentially costly lawsuits for failing to make their website accessible for individuals with disabilities. The Central New York Business Journal has described ADA website compliance lawsuits as "arguably the fastest growing type of litigation."
Recognizing this, Buffalo Service Credit Union partnered with ACS to make their website ADA compliant.
In order for a website to be ADA compliant, the website must be designed and structured in a way that's conducive to the use of assistive technology, such as screen readers for people who are blind. There are specific technical requirements that must be fulfilled in order for a website to be ADA compliant. The ACS team of web designers, web developers and usability specialists leveraged their knowledge of these accessibility requirements to create a website that is made to fulfill specific accessibility features.
Before making the website live to the internet, ACS tested the Buffalo Service Credit Union website design to ensure that all ADA website accessibility requirements were fulfilled. After the website was made public, ACS provided documentation to Buffalo Service Credit Union that can be used as proof to regulators that our client performed their due diligence to comply with ADA website accessibility regulations.
If your website isn't made to be ADA compliant, you could be sued at any moment. Get on the right side of the law.
