How to Make Your Website More Accessible (ADA Compliance Tips)

If you have checked out any of our blog posts so far, you will see that we like to give you tips on how to improve your website. The more the merrier, right?! We think so. So, for this post we are going to give you some tips on how to make your website more accessible and ADA compliant. You don’t have to do anything crazy, and some of these things we have already discussed, but it is important nonetheless. So, let’s jump right to it… 

  • Text size: You want your website to be easily readable to everyone. It’s important that your website is flexible to those who need assistance with viewing your site as well. 
  • Create an organized layout: Any links or buttons should be organized in a way that are clearly defined and that can be easily navigated throughout the site. 
  • Offer alternatives: Make sure your website gives users who need extra assistance the ability to navigate to the content they need, like increasing text size or changing colors.
  • Create text transcripts for video and audio content: You want to make sure users who are hearing impaired can still get the exact information. 
  • Alt-text for images: You want to have a clear description of any visuals you have on your website. This enables the visually impaired to use screen readers to tell them exactly what they are viewing. 

It is important to make sure your website is ADA compliant not only because it is required if you fall under Title I or Title III of the ADA, but when you have an accessible website for everyone you will most likely have more traffic and in return more customers and more sales. We hope this gives you a better understanding on how to make your website ADA compliant!
