ADA stands for Americans with Disabilities Act.
The Americans with Disabilities Act is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life, including jobs, schools, transportation, and all other places open to the general public including digital assets such as websites and applications.
What is ADA compliance?
The ADA is a landmark law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life. The act was passed to ensure accommodations at work, school, and other places open to the general public for people living with any type of disability or impairment as well as those who have long-term illnesses.
The Americans With Disabilities Act has been an important piece of legislation since its passage back in 1990. The purpose behind this civil rights law is quite simple: prohibiting discrimination against disabled people across every area possible, including jobs schools transportation, and pretty much anything else you can think about! It also includes a specific section that addresses website accessibility requirements. While the website accessibility requirement is only one small part of the law, it has had a huge impact beyond anything imagined when the law was first drafted in the 1990s. Website accessibility is no longer simply about accommodating individuals with disabilities on an equal playing field
Who has to comply with the ADA?
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a federal law that provides broad protections for people living with disabilities. It prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability in employment, government programs, services, public accommodations, commercial facilities, transportation, and telecommunications. Those who are considered liable under ADA include bars or restaurants; hotels or motels; theaters, retail stores, supermarkets, parks, zoos, and recreation areas. These entities must be accessible to persons using wheelchairs when reasonable modifications can be made to do so without much difficulty. businesses and organizations have an obligation under the American Disability Act (ADA) to ensure their websites are accessible too. This post discussing who is required by law to comply and what steps need to be taken in order for a website to become ADA compliant.
