ADA

In 2017 Governor Jerry Brown signed A.B. 434, the first law to address ADA compliance online.  It required state agencies and state entities to post a certification of compliance with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 Level AA, or a subsequent version, on their website home pages.
Now that ADA compliance for websites is becoming a necessity, it’s important to know whether your website is indeed compliant to the law, or if you’ll need to make changes to your website to meet ADA standards. Below we’ll also show you examples of websites that are ADA compliant and then explain what can be done to ensure that your website meets those standards.   The ultimate objective of ADA compliance is a website that will be easily accessible for any and all users, including those who are visually or hearing impaired or who have other disabilities. To be able to share your website with all audiences, adjustments to your site will most likely need to be made, which will vary anywhere from the conversion of PDFs to close captioning for video. Below, we’ll cover each of those ADA compliance adjustments for you.
