We worry about your Digital Accessibility so you don’t have to.

Around 56.7 million Americans currently live with some form of disability. This number continues to increase as the population ages. It is expected that by 2060, the number of Americans living with disabilities will double to nearly 90 million. Those with vision, hearing, or physical disabilities are expected to make up around 20 percent of the population. These individuals can experience significant challenges when it comes to accessing websites, as well as applications and online documents.

ADA Compliance for Hospitality & Travel Institutions

Planning trips can be stressful. Can you imagine adding to the frustration because things are not accessible to you? It is important to make sure all consumers can use your website and alleviate some of that frustration.

Why is being ADA Compliant important in Hospitality & Travel Institutions for those with disabilities?

  • If someone with low vision is trying to print boarding passes at an airport kiosk, but it lacks the pinch-to-zoom feature, this task becomes impossible.
  • If a person with severe arthritis cannot select the dates to stay at a hotel because the reservation page is not compatible with voice recognition software, then they may not be able to book your hotel.
  • If a traveler with dyslexia is on a tour guide’s website that uses a color scheme and font that cannot be easily read, it will make it extremely difficult for them to try and use the website.

The Law: The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Title III
First passed: 1990.
Recent court decision: 2017.
Applies to: “Places of public accommodation.” In the past, this was not interpreted to mean websites, but with the recent 2017 judgment against Winn-Dixie, we expect to see more litigation in this space.
Requires: Organizations must provide accommodations for people with disabilities.
