Is Your Website ADA Compliant?
L.E.T. Group's ADA Web Accessibility Package follows the principles and guidelines of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 documentation. The WCAG 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.
The cost of our ADA Web Accessibility Package is to evaluate your website and then perform various steps to optimize and improve your website's Accessibility compliancy. After the updates have been completed, we will provide you with a report that will outline the various modifications that were made along with notes that detail the overall Accessibility of your website.
During the website updates, we will follow the principles and guidelines provided by the WCAG. These standards are published by the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), the main international standards organization for the Internet.
