FAQ

Web accessibility refers to the inclusive practice of removing barriers that prevent interaction with, or access to websites, by people with disabilities. When sites are correctly designed, developed and edited, all users have equal access to information and functionality.

ADA is the Americans Disability Act. This refers to brick and mortar locations an requires them to meet requirements for people with disabilities. However, with Web Accessibility, these two terms sometimes get interchanged with each other when referring to electronic or online documentation.

Yes. If you have a website for your business or share documents online they all need to follow accessibility standards.

There is no straightforward answer to this question. At the current time, the DOJ (Dept. of Justice) is overseeing mandates for Accessibility and have been working to put requirements in place that will follow the WCAG guidelines. As of now the only type of enforcement is lawyers that are willing to take on a disability claim and penalize you for not following the WCAG guidelines.

WCAG stands for Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. At the time of writing, we are at version 2.0 with 2.1 on the horizon. This set of guidelines have been put forth by the W3C in conjunction with the ENU to create a worldwide set of guidelines/standards to follow.

A Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT) is a document that explains how information and communication technology (ICT) products such as software, hardware, electronic content, and support documentation conform to the Revised 508 Standards for IT accessibility. VPATs help Federal agency contracting officials and government buyers to assess ICT for accessibility when doing market research and evaluating proposals.
