How do I Start on the Road to ADA Compliance?

The Road to ADA Compliance is a long and bumpy road, but you do not have to travel that road alone. We are here to assist you!

The first thing you need to do is Clean up your Current Website. Get rid of the old documents (keep 1-2 years unless you are required by law to keep them longer & require them to be on your website), remove unused (not linked) documents, and clean up you website content.

After that is done, start to learn about Remediation: web page remediation, document remediation (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, PDFs), Video and Audio remediation (Youtube, audio files), Quality Assurance (QA/Manual) testing , and about Tools (Siteimprove, Adobe Acrobat, Word, Excel, etc.,) and Resources (webinars, Live Streaming classes, Siteimprove Academy, Lynda.com) that are available to assist you in this endeavor. 

After you learn, you will become the trainers who will help train your staff as it is every agency's responsibility to maintain their content and documents in your website.

The final step is to learn how to "Keep your Website Clean" & ADA compliant. Learn how to create ADA compliant documents and ONLY POST ADA compliant document to your website. Here is where the Siteimprove monitoring tool will help you!
