Work with Us

Work with ADA website compliance experts to ensure your website is accessible to all users.

From adding bold, contrasting colors to text, to writing alt text on every image, to creating a clear user experience that avoids confusion, there are important steps that must be taken to create an equitable website. During strategy sessions, Blennd runs an audit on your current branding to ensure colors meet ADA standards. If we find any issues, we provide recommendations to solve it and make your branding visible to each and every user.

What is ADA compliance for websites?

The Americans with Disabilities Act Standards for Accessible Design highlight clear design standards that make digital platforms accessible for those with disabilities. Ultimately, your website must be easy to read, understand, and operate. From a design perspective, our ADA compliance experts ensure every Blennd website passes rigorous accessibility testing.

Not only does this improve digital experiences for your website visitors, it also improves brand perception, and ensures your website remains high-ranking and healthy. Before and after a Blennd platform launches, our traffic team conducts a full site audit on your domain, identifying any red flags in your sitemap. Among many other things, this can catch any undefined images or dead-ends, ensuring no ranking penalties occur. By the time your new website goes live, it meets all ADA accessibility standards.    

Is ADA compliance mandatory for websites?

The simple answer is yes. ADA compliance is required for the majority of websites with very few exceptions. Your website must be ADA compliant if it is either a website for, or funded by, state or local governments or if it is a website representing a business.

What happens if your website is not ADA compliant?

Any website that fails to meet ADA compliance standards risks lawsuits and hefty fines. If a user reports your site as not ADA compliant, you could receive a fine of up to $75,000. Repeat violations can be as much as $150,000. Federally funded organizations can also lose funding if their websites are not ADA compliant.

In addition to the monetary losses, non-ADA compliant websites can also be damaging to your brand. When people see that your company doesn’t care about serving people with disabilities, it will impact their opinion and future purchase decisions.

How to test a website for ADA compliance

The best way to ensure ADA website compliance is to use an ADA compliance expert to check your website for ADA compliance with a manual audit.

A manual audit involves evaluating every page of your website for ADA accessibility, including checking color contrast, font size, navigation usability and other important website features.
