Due to some recent court decisions in California and Florida, we are advising that all clients consider making their websites ADA compliant. Although no definitive regulations exist yet, two of our clients have received letters from attorneys seeking damages on behalf of blind clients
who cannot access their websites. According to the legal experts we consulted, the combination of these court decisions in the absence of specific laws, means that these suits may have merit.
To avoid incurring costs for legal fees and damages from sight impaired visitors, we strongly recommend that you consider revising your site to be compliant with ADA guidelines before you receive a demand letter. The scope of work required for your ividual site will probably require a quotation based on its functionality and design. To get an idea of the steps required, feel free to test your site herehttp://wave.webaim.org/
To receive a complimentary estimate to make your site compliant, please contact Lyn Nielsen at [email protected] or 631.428.4654.
