Is your website in danger of potential litigation just because you don’t have accessible content on it? This is a fear of countless webmasters in almost every industry. Now that some aspects of WCAG rules are considered legally enforceable, there’s a risk that those who haven’t adopted to them could eventually be sued for their negligence.
At Site Compliance, we hear stories about people who aren’t even sure whether or not their sites would actually pass an audit if they were ever up against one. Don’t wait until something happens. Your IT department or a web designer can plan an individual audit to take a more proactive approach to the whole issue.
Checking that you’re in agreement with all eight of the following guidelines will go a long way toward ensuring overall compliance.
For the longest time, there wasn’t any actual legal framework to enforce WCAG rules. They were considered more along the lines of technical recommendations than anything. However, more recent legislation and litigation have changed this fact. As a result, you need to be sure that your site doesn’t fall afoul of any of these important guidelines.
While you might run far too many online portals to ever check them out manually, you can use a tool like Site Compliance to make sure you’ve met or exceeded all relevant regulations. Contact us online today when you’re ready to learn more about how we can help.
