How much does it cost to make your website ADA compliant?

It depends on the current state of your website. It may be as simple as adding transcriptions for video content or as complex as a complete website redesign. The only way to know for sure is by hiring a specialized company like Idea Maker to audit your website.

Why does my website need to be ADA compliant?

The Americans with Disabilities Act was created to ensure people with deficiencies have access to everything a citizen would, and websites are not excluded from ADA. For example, a blind person must be able to navigate your website through a screen reader.

Is ADA compliance mandatory for my website?

As the Department of Justice currently interprets it, ADA compliance is mandatory for business and government websites.

How do I check accessibility in WordPress?

Install and run the Accessibility Checker plugin. It’ll run a series of tests based on ADA, WCAG 2.1, and Section 508 guidelines.

What happens if my website is not ADA compliant?

You’ll lose customers as users get frustrated and give up on using your website. Additionally, you open yourself up for ADA lawsuits.

How do I make sure my website is ADA compliant?

The easiest way is to hire a reputable company such as Idea Maker to audit your website. However, if you prefer to do it yourself, online tools like Google Lighthouse are available.

Are Wix websites ADA compliant?

You can use the Wix Accessibility Wizard to scan for ADA compliance failures and remediate some of them. While the Wizard isn’t a substitute for a specialized website audit, it can mitigate ADA issues.

Which website builder is best for accessibility?

Both Wix and WordPress offer full accessibility suits and plugins. They’re tied when it comes to accessibility features.
