The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) web access guidelines which became a law in 1999 is a significant equal rights legislation that mandates all public and business websites be accessible to people with disabilities. If your website does not meet the ADA standards, your business is liable to be sued in a court of law and fined appropriately. Therefore, it is essential that your business website become ADA compliant immediately.
