WHAT DOES A DSA DO?
We run into ADA issues quite often these days whether we walk into buildings that do not enable ramps for the handicapped, or businesses that do not have wheelchair-friendly restroom stalls, or websites with color contrast issues and no alternate text on images. As a result, the Americans with Disabilities Act, or ADA, was signed into law on July 26, 1990 by George W. Bush. It is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with all types of disabilities by employers. Technology forces us to think about accessibility in a broader context than even our physical environment. It’s not just whether a person requires a wheelchair. A person could be visually impaired or have a motor disability. A person could have slower internet or an older browser. With a graying population, some are not familiar with modern user interface (UI) pattern. Disabilities may include visual, auditory, physical, speech, mental and neurological disabilities. Adherence to web accessibility standards not only benefits the handicapped but all users. Website ADA compliance includes guidelines that take into consideration the needs of people with disabilities so they can navigate your site and get the information they need.
