WCAG Digital Accessibility for Websites

WCAG 2.1 Website Accessibility Development

ThermoDynamo makes websites more accessible using WCAG 2.1 guidelines. Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 defines how to make Web content more accessible to people with disabilities. Accessibility involves a wide range of disabilities, including visual, auditory, physical, speech, cognitive, language, learning, and neurological disabilities. Although these guidelines cover a wide range of issues, they are not able to address the needs of people with all types, degrees, and combinations of disability. These guidelines also make Web content more usable by older individuals with changing abilities due to aging and often improve usability for users in general.

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) governs website accessibility for people with disabilities in the United States. The ADA requires that any person or organization make their website readily accessible and usable by individuals with disabilities if it is for use by the public. Web content should be accessible to blind users, deaf users, and those who must navigate by voice, screen readers, or other assistive technologies.

To assist businesses with ADA compliance, Section 44 of the IRS Code allows a tax credit for small businesses and Section 190 of the IRS Code allows a tax deduction for all businesses.

The tax credit is available to businesses that have total revenues of $1,000,000 or less in the previous tax year or 30 or fewer full-time employees. This credit can cover 50% of the eligible access expenditures in a year up to $10,250 (maximum credit of $5000). The tax credit can be used to offset the cost of making your website WCAG compliant.

Digital accessibility (WCAG) lawsuits can result in financial settlements, court-ordered remedies, and legal fees. The ADA non-compliance penalty is up to $75,000 for first-time violations and a $150,000 fine for every repeat violation. Therefore it is highly advisable to get your website accessible complaint today.
