This week on the Digital Velocity Podcast, Greg Bray of Blue Tangerine joins Erik and Tim to discuss ADA website compliance and the impacts of noncompliance.
The Americans with Disabilities Act has many facets, but as it relates to website compliance, Greg explains that
“When we start talking about websites, we’re talking about those who need help accessing a website where they’re not using the traditional keyboard and mouse to interact with the website. So, they’re using some type of an assistive technology.”
ADA compliance must become an integral part of business strategy to be successful. Greg says,
“I do believe that to truly make accessibility work, it has to become part of your process, part of your culture even.”
The very core of this issue is the customer. Greg says,
“The other place to really start is just that business decision of are we going to care or not? Are we going to roll the dice and take our chances and just keep doing what we’re doing? Or are we going to say, you know what? We’re going to pay attention to this. Not just because we’re trying to avoid a lawsuit, but because we care about our customers and reaching them…”
Listen to this week’s episode to learn more about how your website can and should become ADA compliant.
