Do You Know That As Of November 2018 The Department Of Justice Determined That Business With 15 Or More Employees Must Make Their Website Accessible To People With Disabilities?
This means that your website needs to be accessible to people with a variety of Disabilities.
This is very important because because of over 150,000 demand letters have been served to businesses, 93% of them settled out of court for $20,000 to $150,000 on average!
So not being ADA compliant can be a very expensive proposition. While being compliant can give access to your products and services to over 650 million people with disabilities world wide. This is very under served market that most businesses are not aware of at all.
