The Website Accessibility Standard relates to the Americans with Disabilities Act or ADA and came about because as technology has changed more and more has business is being conducted on the web. That might be an individual interacting with government or consumers interacting with a business. This isn’t exactly new, ADA standards have been in place for a long time, elements of the law have dictated that certain changes in how business has been done needed to accommodate people with disabilities. As those interactions between business and consumer have moved to the web, the ability of people with disabilities to get what & need has diminished. The Website Accessibility Standard seeks to ensure that as technology evolves people with disabilities are not left behind. While we at Anthem are not lawyers and do not purport to give legal advice, as we read the standard, we believe it applies to every business that provides a product or service to the public. Again that is our opinion and you as a business owner should consult with your lawyer to get a recommendation. Regardless of whether or not you and your lawyer determine if it does or does not apply to you, it certainly seem like the right thing to do. We at Anthem want to provide a simple inexpensive way for all of us to do just that.
