ADA, WCAG, Section 504 and 508, website accessibility - these are all top of mind for many schools and districts. But what does ADA (the Americans with Disabilities Act) have to do with your website? It's all about making sure the content on your website is accessible to all visitors. Just as ADA has made it easier for those with disabilities to navigate the physical world, it also applies to how users with visual and physical disabilities access your website's content. Today, we have Web Content accessibility guidelines (WCAG) and Section 508 Standards to serve as guidance for how to do just that. Light is a clean and stylish font favored by designers.
