In 2021, there were well over 4,000 lawsuits filed against companies because their website did not meet the accessibility standards under the Americans with Disabilities Act and related state laws.
However, the number of threatened lawsuits and/or private settlements may be anywhere from 6x to 10x that amount.
In this 30-minute session you’ll learn why (and how) you should avoid being on the wrong end of an accessibility complaint, including:
- The hidden costs of having to react to accessibility complaints and lawsuits
- How many of the popular “add on” accessibility widgets and overlays will leave your wallet emptier, and your site still inaccessible
- The potential damage it can (or will) cause to your company’s brand, among consumers
- How to develop a cohesive accessibility plan for your website, based on your company’s systems and goals
