Happy 34th Anniversary ADA!

In 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act was enacted to ensure that people with disabilities were not discriminated against and that they had equal access to all public services. The ADA now applies to the web and other digital assets as well.

ADA Compliance Standards for accessible design were published by the Department of Justice in September 2010. This impacts how physical access design is more inclusive for all.

In April of this year, the Department of Justice published a final rule  to make web content and mobile applications accessible to people with disabilities under Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The final rule clarifies what state and local governments must do to make their websites and applications accessible by April 2026.

WCAG standards continue to update and evolve. Currently, WCAG 2.1 are the requirements to follow when creating an inclusive and usable website. When defining your accessibility goals, Level AA is the benchmark within the WCAG requirements.
