In order to make sure websites are accessible to all website visitors, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) has implemented standards for websites in the form of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) currently at version 2.1 and levels A, AA, and AAA (each level increases compliance and therefore complexity).
In practical terms, this means users who are visually impaired (e.g. color blind or are legally blind) or mobility impaired (e.g. cannot use a mouse) will have the ability to understand your website because the site is structured and presented in ways that can be read, and are navigable, by screen readers of various types. Content font size can easily be increased, color contrast is obvious, imagery has associated alternative text and videos have transcripts that are machine readable.
More and more people are using the web and there is a substantial untapped audience wanting to gain access to your valuable content. More sites are becoming ADA WCAG 2.x compliant which means - if your site is not compliant - you may be missing out on potential clients and/or customers who go elsewhere because they cannot read your site. Now is the time to make sure your site is WCAG 2.x compliant.
