EcomBack’s remediation service involves implementing changes to the website to remove accessibility barriers and ensure compliance with ADA and WCAG 2.2 AA guidelines.

Once the website is compliant, EcomBack offers ongoing monitoring and maintenance to help website owners keep their websites accessible after updates, regardless of their abilities. Although there is no such thing as 100% accessibility at all times, substantial compliance should be the goal.

By partnering with a web accessibility service provider like EcomBack, businesses can improve and monitor their digital assets, like websites, so that they are accessible and compliant with the DOJ’s website ADA recommendations while mitigating the risk of legal action and improving the user experience for all users.
