What is ADA Compliance?
ADA compliance refers to the Americans with Disabilities Act, which ensures equal opportunities for disabled users. Ensuring that your public website complies with ADA rules can help protect you from lawsuits.
Steps for Successful ADA Testing
To test for ADA compliance, a combination of automated tools and manual steps are necessary. The guidelines provided by WCAG establish the criteria that need to be met, particularly WCAG 2.0 AA standards.
Using an automated tool like ours, you can test for Section 508 conformance during development and also perform manual testing for other issues. Regularly scan your pages and conduct manual testing on high-priority pages after critical releases. For manual testing, refer to the Section 508 testing instructions available here.
