Recently, https://biz.builders released the WCAG Website Accessibility Audit Inspection Case Study for Beverly Hills California Chamber of Commerce Members, a fifteen-page report detailing findings based on the inspection and audit of websites belonging to the members of the Beverly Hills Chamber of Commerce. The report reveals the surprising revelation that many of the websites reviewed do not comply with the standards set forth by the WCAG, or Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.
With the number of website accessibility lawsuits is increasing, all sites are now at risk of being sued if they do not demonstrate accessibility to people with disabilities. The Website Accessibility ADA WCAG Section 508 Audits are a series of testing criteria to help guide website operators in creating a website that is more accessible to those with disabilities.
The purpose of the report is to inform businesses of the importance of website compliance, the most common barriers affecting websites today, and recommendations on how to remediate website accessibility barriers best. Currently, there are over 50 million people in the United States with disabilities that would affect their use of a website requiring reasonable accommodations. Business owners and website developers have a limited understanding of website accessibility guidelines (Alternatives, Presentation, User Control, Understandable, and Predictable), placing them at an increased risk of becoming targeted for legal action and lawsuits, potentially resulting in insurmountable consequences, especially for small businesses who may find themselves in this situation.
Highlights of the recent report are available online, where those who wish to obtain the complete fifteen-page inspection can sign up to be granted full access via the biz.builders website.
Often times, businesses are caught off guard when they learn their website is guilty of violating Website Accessibility ADA WCAG Section 508 Audits. By now, you too might be wondering if your own business website could be in violation of WCAG standards.
If you’re concerned that your company is at risk of violating WCAG standards, or if yours is among the many business websites cited for non-compliance, the solution is simple.
