Higher Ed Websites: ADA Compliance Best Practices

Your website should reach as many prospective students as possible — including the 1 billion people in the world living with disabilities. Building a modern, fully accessible website is no easy task, yet it can be obtained by incorporating the best practices for ADA compliance in higher education.

These best practices make sure your site meets the needs of students with differing abilities and stays ahead of changing ADA compliance requirements at the same time.

More regular and sophisticated monitoring and testing is a big part of the new approach. But testing alone is not enough to get the job done. In many cases, a website redesign is the most efficient and cost-effective way to ensure compliance with the more stringent and modern web accessibility standards.
