For this reason, FourFront developed an ADA testing system that robotically checks all of your webpages for ADA, WCAG 2.O, and Section 508 web accessibility standards. It also provides a detailed compliance report with a summary of all identified errors, code snippets of their exact location, and what is necessary to remediate the issue.

What is ADA Web Compliance?
The American Disabilities Act (ADA) was passed in 1990 to ensure that businesses fairly accommodate people with disabilities. ADA web compliance refers to the mandate that web content should be accessible to those with disabilities by the means of assistive technology such as screen readers, screen magnifiers, and switch controls. Lawsuits related to ADA compliance and websites have risen dramatically in the last several years (see image, below).
HOW do you know if YOUR WEBSITE IS ADA COMPLIANT?
There are several criteria that govern ADA compliance. In simple terms, websites need to have a logical structure and understandable content. They also need to accommodate all forms of assistive technology. In more detailed terms, the ADA uses a standard set of guidelines to measure website compliance. They are known as WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) that change and evolve with the dynamic state of online technology. The best way to understand your website’s level of compliance is to perform a comprehensive ADA audit and continue to perform period checks to ensure the site remains compliant to new standards and technologies.
How long does it take for an ada compliance audit?
The process is quick and simple. All we need is a link to your home page and we can have our system test your entire site for ADA compliance. Depending on the number of pages, the test is usually complete within one or two business days. This time frame may be longer for very large websites. Once the test is complete you receive an email with a link to the compliance report. This report can be sent directly to your developer for remediation.
