ADA Compliance / Accessibility

The objective of this page is to inform you of what ADA compliance is, our efforts to comform to certain standards, who we have worked with, and some more information along those lines

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact 'The Customer Connection':

What is ADA Compliance?

The Americans with Disabilities Act(ADA) was instituted in 1990 in an effort to end discrimination based on differing abilities. Drawing heavily from the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964, which established protections against discrimination based on race, religion, sex or national origin, the ADA went a step further by requiring organizations to provide “reasonable accommodations” to people with disabilities

Website ADA Compliance

The ADA’s relationship with websites has been a complicated and often confusing story. The ADA does not explicitly address online compliance, even after undergoing several amendments in the far more web-oriented era of 2008. With no specific coverage under the law, it usually falls to the courts to determine how ADA standards apply to websites—or whether they do at all.

What We've Done

Given that no central group or organization officially regulates standards, some groups have stepped in to assist. The World Wide Web Consortium has created something of an "agreed upon" standard that developers reference at all times, "Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0" (linked blow). Within these guidelines, there are levels of compliancy (A - AA - AAA) with "AAA" being the most compliant to WCAG II standards. Utah State University has an internal group, WebAim (also linked below), to evaluate websites for conformity to WCAG II standards and have in multiple occasions evaluated this website to conform to "AA WCAG II"

More Info On Evaluaiton Process

Accessibility consultants from Utah State University aka WebAim, were asked to assist our developers as a secondary effort to ensure we have done due diligence, while developing a product that can be accessed by all users. Working with third party teams such as WebAim provide invaluable insight to our developers, especially considering these teams are an organizations purposed solely on the analysis of website accessibility for all users.
