WCAG 2.0 AND SECTION 508
YOU COULD BE AT RISK OF A LAWSUIT BECAUSE OF YOUR WEBSITE
The number of businesses facing lawsuits because their websites are not accessible to visually impaired or auditory impaired users is skyrocketing. Why? If your website isn’t accessible to the visually or auditory impaired, who use assistive technology to browse websites, courts have ruled you could be discriminating against those protected under the ADA.
