DCKAP ADA (Americans Disability Act) experts with extensive experience and training will help you meet the accessibility needs for your website. Our Accessibility service will determine how well your website can be perceived, operated, easily understandable and robust, irrespective of the technology or platform used to access it by disabled people. Our tailor-made accessibility service allows merchants of different digital verticals to fulfill their compliance needs.

Around 30 million people in the US are differently abled. This includes those with cognitive issues, hearing loss, and vision loss. This group of people will also have Web-impacting disabilities, which creates a barrier for them to navigate websites.

DCKAP will make sure the application complies with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1) for the application, and with the Section 508 compliance checklist published for the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, which is followed for accessibility compliance.

As per the Click-Away Pound Survey, “ non accessible websites cost the British retailers £11.75 billion ($16.5 billion) in 2016 alone.” “During the year of 2018, more than 5,000 lawsuits have been filed in the US,” says The Guardian, for violating the business online presence rules provided by the 1990 Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA).

Our main focus would be finding the issues which violate WCAG 2.1 Level A (Basic compliance) and Level AA (necessary compliance).
