Some of the Things Your Site Needs to Be ADA Compliant
The following list is not meant to be exhaustive but rather a high-level view of some of the numerous elements that our team looks for in an audit and then incorporates into your website.
Closed captioning & subtitles
Videos need to display captioning for hearing impaired viewers.
Alternative iFrame/Video text
Alt text for videos that describes an embedded video.
Screen reader compatibility
Visually impaired visitors use screen readers that navigate through copy linearly. We make sure your copy is placed logically and flows smoothly.
Alternative image text
Descriptive text added to all images on a web page, making it easy for screen readers to describe what's there.
Accessibility with keyboard
Site visitors with motor disabilities or screen readers need to be able to control links, buttons, and input fields with tab, arrows, or other keys.
Color allocation and contrast
Ensure that color-blind or visually impaired visitors have the full benefit of info that is often displayed via color, using labels or icons instead of color-coding.
Skip navigation links
These allow keyboard-only users to skip repetitive content and move directly to the main content on a page.

Why ADA Compliance Is Important
Like thousands of other companies, Domino’s Pizza was hit with a lawsuit over website accessibility. They chose to fight, working their way through lower-level courts and even requesting the U.S. Supreme Court hear their appeal. The Supreme Court refused to hear the case. While you may think this has nothing to do with your website, the law begs to differ.
As the plaintiff’s attorney said, “The blind and visually impaired must have access to websites and apps to fully and equally participate in modern society— something nobody disputes.”
This left Domino's with many problems on their hands; bad press, a need to quickly update their website, and the risk of being sued again.
The U.S. Department of Justice has taken the position that the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”) applies to websites, mobile apps, and the Internet of Things. To avoid discriminating against people with disabilities, digital products must be designed to meet compliance standards. If you fail to meet these standards, you face an array of risks. Working with an agency like O8 can help protect you from these risks. Ensuring compliance is both the smart and the right thing to do.
