ADA Compliance for your website

Powered by

We’ve received a lot of concerns over the website accessibility as more businesses are getting sued for out of compliance with digital accessibility. As your website manager, we’d like to get ahead of the subject!

What is website/digital accessibility?

Just like our communities are trying hard to create a barrier-free and accessible environment to include all its members, the same concept is now being brought to the digital world. By participating in this program, you’re making your business more accessible and your website more usable for people of all abilities.

What does that have to do with me and my business?

Did you know that approximately 26% of Americans, which is equivalent to 1 in 4 people, live with a disability? By removing the barriers for these individuals to access your website, you’re opening up to a whole new audience before you know!

As small business owners, we have an urgent subject at hand – legal compliance. Under the ADA’s Title III, it is against the law for public-facing businesses such as restaurants, retail stores, banks, and event venues to discriminate based on ability. Failure to provide compliant web design and structure on business and organization websites exposes them to various risks, such as regulatory fines, civil lawsuits, settlements, consent orders, and high attorney fees.

Over the past decade, there has been a significant surge in website-related lawsuits related to ADA compliance. In fact, the number of cases has skyrocketed from a mere 18 in 2014 to over 4,000 in 2021.

By implementing an accessibility overlay on websites, the chances of being sued decrease by a substantial 85%. In fact, less than 2% of vendors who use Userway have ever faced legal action, demonstrating the effectiveness of this AI-powered solution.

How does it work?

The Userway accessibility overlay offers a customized experience based on user preference. Once the widget is installed and fully configured, it will show up as a button with the universal accessibility symbol on a corner on your website. The customization includes adjusting font-size, or orientation, contrast strength, and native screen-reader tools. The widget also detects and fixes accessibility violations.

An overlay is placed on top of your website where all the customization and interaction with the content happens. Your original design will remain the same when the widget is not in use.

Benefits of Web Accessibility Overlay Widget

We partner up with Userway because they are a proven solution to website accessibility compliance.

Cost-friendly to small businesses

Accessibility software offers cost-effective solutions that include ongoing scanning for website violations, continuous monitoring for new content, and professional code-level remediation. Compared to traditional accessibility services, the cost of implementing an accessibility overlay is significantly lower. Additionally, these overlays provide additional business benefits and protection against liability.

Legal compliance

It is crucial to comply with regulatory requirements such as the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) in the United States and the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) for digital accessibility. Failing to meet these standards can lead to penalties, lawsuits, and harm to your reputation.

Expanded reach

By improving digital accessibility of your website, you can tap into a broader audience, including individuals with disabilities who may face barriers when accessing your products and services.

Enhanced user experience

Making your website digitally accessible benefits all users, not just those with disabilities. For example, adding captions and transcripts to videos not only assists individuals with hearing impairments but also caters to those who prefer consuming content silently.

Social responsibility

In today’s world, we are putting more focus on recognizing the ethical and social importance of digital accessibility. Prioritizing web accessibility aligns with the notion of doing the right thing, driven by a sense of social responsibility toward every user.

Improved brand reputation

By prioritizing digital accessibility, you are showing a commitment to inclusivity and social responsibility, boosting your brand reputation and differentiating you from competitors.


What audience would find the widget helpful?

By implementing the AI-powered solution, we’re making your digital content accessible to the widest possible audience, including people with a range of disabilities such as:

  • Visual impairments
  • Motor difficulties
  • Cognitive impairments
  • Learning disabilities
  • Deafness or impaired hearing

Can you just fix my site instead?

Yes, we can. However, you’re looking at an additional and ongoing investment of $15,000+. The traditional accessibility service is complex and cost-intensive as it involves a team of accessibility auditors and compliance experts assessing every element of the website down to the color contrast of the button. We’ll then remedy the website based on the assessment with extra charges. Aside from the cost, the project is likely to take at least 2-3 months to complete, depending on the size of your website.
