If your organization is planning a website redesign, it’s a great investment to design for website accessibility upfront instead of worrying about it later. Ensuring your website is conformant to current ADA standards will help your site be accessible by the 20% of Americans with a disability, and can protect your company or institution from potential lawsuits, which nearly tripled in 2018 to over 2,250.
