White Paper on ADA Website Compliance

COVID-19 Moves ADA Compliance for Websites to the Forefront

Summer 2020 | ATTORNEY ARTICLE

Authors: Adam R. Bialek, Kara Thorvaldsen

Adam R. Bialek (Partner-New York) and Kara Thorvaldsen (Partner-Boston) collaborated on a white paper, “COVID-19 Moves ADA Compliance for Websites to the Forefront,” with Nicholas Le Seelleur, executives of AAAtraq, a fully automated system providing digital supply chain management, compliance pathways and training services.

Online activity has increased significantly since the COVID-19 pandemic began, particularly as it relates to retail and gaming. E-commerce has exploded in multiple sectors, including home products/furnishings, garden essentials and electronics.

Inability

The inability to fully engage with websites can inhibit the ability of persons with disabilities to participate in many aspects of society – especially given the constraints of the pandemic. The authors posit that well over 90% of websites are not ADA compliant, which leaves the operators open to legal action against them.

The Strategic Approach

The white paper describes how businesses need to understand that Web accessibility cannot be considered a one-off project or dealt with in isolation. It requires a consistent, systematic and monitored approach – indeed, it may require a change in company culture. In that respect, automation lends itself to greater efficiently and accountability.
