Becoming ADA compliant on a WordPress website can be a lot of work! We start with the basics, and go beyond.

Target a larger audience

Whether you target a small demographic or offer services to an array of customers, you can benefit from making your  WordPress website more accessible to a broader range of individuals. Reach more visitors and keep them, by allowing screen readers to describe the images to the blind, ensuring your navigation can be used without a mouse for those with physical limitations, and more.

Improve your SEO results

Search engines have changed — becoming more human-like in their approach to crawling, consuming, and understanding page content. By making your WordPress site more accessible, it also becomes easier for both search engines and screen readers to make sense of content and structure. Your accessibility efforts can enhance your SEO endeavors as well.

Up your reputation

Show that your visitors are valuable and respected, by making their browsing experience a priority. Making an effort to include everyone will be apparent to those who need the accessibility that is implemented. Imagine they’ve been “getting by” on other websites, and are able to access your content with greater ease than expected thanks to our WordPress ADA compliance services.

Avoid the worry

With WordPress accessibility and compliance, it’s better to be proactive than reactive. Compliance should be done out of concern for your visitors — not for fear of legal action — but that can be a driving-factor for many website owners. Many esteemed brands and businesses have already been sued for lack of ADA compliance.

Stop worrying about ADA lawsuits

WordPress ADA compliance lawsuits are a lot more common than you might think.

Some people proactively target websites that fail to meet ADA standards in search of a quick payday. As your website grows, it can become a bigger target for potential lawsuits.

To give you an idea, civil penalties for a first violation of ADA compliance can cost as much as $92,000. Subsequent violations carry higher penalties, with costs rising up to approximately $184,000.

That’s why WordPress ADA compliance is a must. On top of helping you avoid legal costs, high accessibility standards also translate to a better user experience for all of your visitors.
