ADA Compliance Toolkit for Continuous Protection and Accessibility.
Class Action Lawsuits Due to Web Content Accessibility Guidelines
In order to be ADA Compliant, all websites must comply with the U.S. Department of Justice’s Standards of Accessible Design. That means your website must be accessible to people with disabilities.
There are a lot of ways that a customer may need to modify your website to access it, therefore under the American Disabilities Act (ADA), all websites are legally required to provide accommodations for those needs.
WCAG is the standard created by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) to for site accessibility. The W3C sets universal guidelines for websites to follow in order to be ADA and WCAG compliant.
The short answer: it depends.
Most automotive websites are built using the guidelines of the WCAG 2.1 A Standards.
However, websites rapidly change and can be edited by both developers and the business. Websites also contain third party content, OEM marketing collateral, images and other elements, which can impact your standing with ADA compliance. Every time you modify your website, you increase the risk of getting out of compliance.
How exactly does ADAPT help?

ADAPT goes well-beyond the WCAG 2.1 A compliance requirements, ensuring continuous ADA accessibility for consumers and legal defense for our clients.
