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 State & Local Government Institutions
Citizens want to be connected with their state and government officials and institutions. The ability to stay connected should be available to everyone, not just individuals without disabilities.
Digital accessibility helps people with disabilities stay involved in their community, whether that is through casting a vote in elections or just having their voices heard in local politics.
Why is being ADA Compliant important in State & Local Government Institutions for those with disabilities?
- Form fields need to be readable by a screen reader if a town wishes to collect feedback from citizens.
- If a citizen with low vision wishes to look up their property tax record on their iPad, but the county’s website doesn’t allow pinch-to-zoom, they will not be able to make the text large enough to read.
- If residents are deaf or hard of hearing and go to a video that is posted on the state senator’s website and there are no captions or transcripts, they will not be able to understand the video.
