Championing Accessibility: Our Commitment to ADA Compliance at 815 Media

Introduction:
At 815 Media, we believe in creating a digital world that is accessible to everyone. Our commitment goes beyond just following guidelines; it’s about embracing the spirit of inclusivity that the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) represents. In this blog post, we’re excited to share how we integrate ADA compliance into our web development and design processes, ensuring that everyone, regardless of their abilities, can access and enjoy our content.

Understanding ADA Compliance:
The ADA is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life. In the digital realm, this means making websites and web applications accessible to people with a wide range of disabilities. This includes ensuring that our content is navigable and understandable for users with visual, auditory, motor, and cognitive impairments.

How We Achieve ADA Compliance:

  1. Web Design with Accessibility in Mind:
  • Our design team prioritizes accessibility from the onset of every project. We use color contrasts that are easily discernible, create layouts that are navigable through keyboard and screen readers, and ensure that all interactive elements are accessible.
  1. Content Creation with a Purpose:
  • When creating content, we follow best practices for readability and clarity. This includes using plain language, providing alternative text for images, and structuring content in a logical way.
  1. Custom Programming for Inclusivity:
  • Our developers are skilled in creating custom solutions that cater to various accessibility needs. Whether it’s custom WordPress plugins or unique web applications, we ensure that all our products meet or exceed ADA standards.
  1. Continuous Testing and Improvement:
  • Compliance is not a one-time task. We continuously test our websites using both automated tools and manual evaluations to identify and fix any accessibility issues. We also stay updated with the latest ADA guidelines to ensure ongoing compliance.

Why ADA Compliance Matters:
ADA compliance is not just about avoiding legal complications; it’s about corporate responsibility and ethical practice. By adhering to ADA standards, we create an inclusive environment online that respects and values the diverse needs of our community. It’s a commitment to equality and accessibility for all.

Conclusion:
At 815 Media, ADA compliance is an integral part of our mission to create a more accessible digital world. We take pride in our role as leaders in this field and are committed to continuing our efforts in making the web a place for everyone.
