Prepare In Advance

The digital accessibility market is experiencing rapid growth due to the substantial market segment excluded by inaccessible websites and the persistent legal risks associated with non-compliant content. At Harris Grant Consulting, we are committed to helping businesses and organizations achieve ADA and Section 508 compliance across their digital platforms. Please read on to understand the importance of digital accessibility and how our services can help you achieve compliance and inclusivity.

Market Size & Legal Risks

Inaccessible websites and digital documents exclude a significant market segment and expose businesses to potential legal risks. The number of ADA website law legal actions is rising, affecting various sectors, including local governments, schools, bars, restaurants, hospitals, and banks. Our ADA remediation process helps ensure businesses are compliant.

508 Remediation & Content Remediation

Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 mandates federal agencies to provide people with disabilities equal access to electronic and information technology. This covers computer hardware, software, networks, and electronic devices, including websites, apps, and documents. Section 508 is distinct from the ADA, but they share a common spirit of inclusivity

Understanding Section 508

Achieving 508 compliance involves making electronic and information technology accessible to individuals with disabilities in accordance with Section 508 standards. This includes documents, websites, mobile apps, and hardware. Our team is dedicated to helping your business meet these standards by implementing and testing against the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 Level AA
