Fact: Over 10,000 local businesses were sued in 2019 because their website was not compliant with new ADA laws.

Imagine struggling to do something as simple as navigating and reading a website, when you’re suffering from Glaucoma, Cataracts, Macular degeneration, Retinal disorders, Refractive errors, Optic nerve disorders, and other eye issues. Reading the text in order to gain knowledge and information, would be tiring at the least. Your website doesn’t need to be like that, in fact, your website can be a pleasant experience where the visually impaired can easily zoom in and out on every page or, the text to speech feature will convert to the audible voice that you are listening to right now.
The ADA or American Disabilities Act requires that all websites be compliant with their guidelines.
Failing to comply with the ADA means your business could be susceptible to lawsuits, and it’s quite common for attorneys to seek out noncompliant businesses, both in the physical and digital space. The costs of an ADA lawsuit will add up quickly.
Other than a business being forced to comply, which is costly, the business will have to pay attorneys’ fees, which can be tens of thousands of dollars. Depending on the state, the business owner can easily be looking at a $50,000 bill.
At KSM, we’re not promoting this because of the fear of lawsuits, we’re promoting it because it’s just the right thing to do when you have the technology to help people.
