Your Practice Online is committed to providing solutions to make our clients’ websites available to as many people as possible. We make every effort to ensure website-based communications are accessible to those with visual, hearing, cognitive, and motor impairments by meeting the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
Your Practice Online acknowledges that internet users with disabilities can find websites difficult to use. We recognize this important issue and are taking necessary steps to ensure that websites developed by Your Practice Online are in accordance with known guidelines framed by industry-standard techniques and practices, to provide an acceptable level of accessibility for website users. These include, but are not limited to, the characteristics of usability for most screen reader users, keyboard-only users, and users with impaired hearing and vision.
What Are We Doing?
Your Practice Online recognizes that there may be various interpretations of ADA compliance due to the lack of clear and concise published requirements.
We have developed an internal audit ADA checklist based on industry consortiums and current published criteria, with the goal of improving internet user accessibility that meets the needs of individuals, organizations, and governments worldwide; and to communicate how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities.
Furthermore, we have communicated to our client base the need to update their websites in accordance with the ADA requirements, by offering clients an affordable solution to upgrade aging, non-compliant websites.
Your Practice Online continues to dedicate additional resources to improve this process, benchmark new technology and requirements as they become available, and develop additional web-based solutions for Americans with Disabilities. We continue to enhance our audit and benchmark process of redesigning and developing new websites to be compliant with the current W3C Level One guidelines available to us at this time.
