Complete Web Accessibility Consulting, Remediation Services and Leadership
AKEA Web Solutions specializes in providing complete Web Accessibility (WCAG) consulting services. It’s one of the key differences between us and other web design firms – we provide web design and web accessibility.
Our team has been consulting in web accessibility for over a decade.
The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 is the recognized standard for website accessibility.
If your organization is a governmental institution, a college or university or a public school, Federal law requires that your website meets web accessibility standards. Educational institutions are required to comply with Section508 standards.
Many organizations, whether public accommodations or privately held businesses, are currently facing legal action due to noncompliance with web accessibility standards.
Legal cases are only increasing as time goes on:
- 2017 saw 814 Federal lawsuits filed
- Onslaught of class action lawsuits alleging violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
- DOJ enforces laws for State and local government services, employment, commercial facilities, transportation, and places of public accommodation
- Litigation trend: Website accessibility under the ADA
In 2018, this will continue to snowball.
There is Good News – You Can Be Proactive
The best course of action for any organization that is not currently involved in a legal complaint or lawsuit is to take action now.
Historically, an organization that has begun the process of auditing and remediation fairs well if called out on noncompliance with ADA, WCAG and Section508 standards.
The First Step: Begin Your Web Accessibility Audit
AKEA can help you begin the process by performing a complete website audit on your website and digital document downloads.
If your company or institution is already involved in legal action, AKEA will help you expedite the process of auditing and remediation.
