Website owners should make accessibility a top priority for ethical, legal, and user experience reasons because failure to do so can lead to legal action against the site and harm the brand’s reputation. Maintaining ADA and WCAG compliance is essential and can be accomplished through routine audits, employee training, and assistance from expert ADA service providers. 

EcomBack offers audits, fixes, and continuous monitoring of websites for ADA compliance. We locate accessibility issues and suggest ways to overcome them in our no-cost audit. By working with EcomBack, you can mitigate your exposure to legal liability, improve your users’ experience, and stay in compliance with accessibility standards.

We at EcomBack provide a range of services to help website owners achieve ADA compliance, including website audits, remediation, and ongoing monitoring.

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.
