Good news, everyone! If you’re a client of MDPM Consulting, then your site is officially compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Ensuring your site is ADA compliant not only helps you provide a better online experience for your patients, but it can also help you avoid a host of penalties and legal issues!
What Is ADA Compliance?
In order to comply with Title III of the Americans With Disabilities Act, your website needs to be easy to use for Americans with hearing and vision issues, which could otherwise make navigating a website difficult, if not impossible. To the right, you can see an example of a page on one of our clients’ websites detailing their compliance. Changes you may need to make to your website include:
- Having a text-only version of the site available
- Having resizable text and a high-contrast mode
- Text descriptions for photos and videos
- Complete functionality using a keyboard only
- Adding a page to detail your compliance with Title III
What if My Site Is Not Compliant?
As previously mentioned, non-compliance can mean fines and penalties. Yet, more importantly, not having an easily accessible website can cause difficulties for disabled people looking for dental care. If you have questions or need help with this issue, we can provide a thorough analysis of your site to determine if it’s compliant, and to make changes where necessary to ensure that you are! We’ll also place this page on your site so visitors and regulators know that your site is completely ADA compliant.
