ADA Compliance

If your organization website is not ADA compliant, you may become subject to litigation and/or penalties.

In 1990 the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was established to ensure that people with disabilities have the same opportunities as anyone else. Therefore, this means any organization that serves the public must make sure their facilities accommodate people with disabilities of various kinds.

ADA compliance has since been expanded to apply to public websites as well. Essentially, this means that your website needs to be accessible to people who have hearing, vision or other physical related disabilities.

Municipal Impact makes every possible effort to make sure that each client website is compliant with the American with Disabilities Act. Every website we host is designed and developed with the following accessibility guidelines in mind:

  • We work to comply with Section 508 as well as 2.0 A and AA referring to website accessibility standards.
  • The standard font used throughout the site has been chosen to be easily legible.
  • Wherever possible, we use live text instead of graphics to reduce the download time of pages and increase your control.
  • No information is exclusively conveyed using color. This doesn't mean that colors are not used to organize information; instead it means there are also other, non-color dependent ways of doing this.
  • All images and hyperlinks, where appropriate, have an alternative text attribute. This means when an image or hyperlink is conveying important information its content is described with an alternative text.

Having an ADA compliant website will also improve your search engine rankings and your overall online reputation.
