ADA Guidelines We Follow
If people with disabilities can't figure out what your website is offering or how to use it, it isn't accessible to them. We design our content in a way that is easy to both understand and use.
WorldLight Media has designed and developed dozens of websites through the years. See what our clients say about us.

- What are the ADA compliance guidelines?
The full list of ADA compliance guidelines can be found here.
- What is ADA compliance?
ADA compliance is making your website available to be used by people with a wide range of disabilities. You can think of it like making your website accessible the same way that a physical store might use a wheelchair ramp to make the store more accessible.
- Why does ADA compliance matter?
Besides avoiding lawsuits, having an ADA compliant website brings many benefits for your business. You can reach a wider online audience, and it also makes your website overall easier to use and navigate.
- Do I need ADA compliance on my website?
Yes! ADA compliance makes your website accessible to a wider online audience, and it also helps your business align with the American’s with Disabilities Act.
If you don't know where to get started, WorldLight Media can help!
- How can I make my website more ADA compliant?
There are a few ways you can make your existing website more compliant with ADA guidelines.
You can perform a manual audit and remediation on your website.
You can manually build your website to be ADA compliant from the ground up.
You can install a plugin that will modify your website to each user's needs.
However, the best option, and the one we recommend, is to use accessiBe to reach compliance.
- Is ADA compliance optional?
ADA compliance isn't optional anymore. Although there are no mandates for private businesses, having an accessible website has many benefits to your business and your clients.
There are no deadlines for people to change over. And although the law hasn’t actually changed, the interpretation of the law has changed.
- How do I keep my website ADA compliant in the future?
ADA compliance is ongoing. There are things you can do to ensure that your website stays compliant such as:
- Include alternative text (alt tags) with every image you upload.
- Your Web Accessibility Coordinator or Individual Consultant can monitor your website monthly. And run the audits that ensure you are 100% compliant.
- Closely follow the Web Accessibility Plan set forth by your Coordinator or Consultant.
- Engage in Continued Education on how to maintain compliance.
