Why Was My Website Not Created Accessible in the First Place?Most websites were designed before there was a demand for it to be accessible, and honestly making a site accessible was expensive. There are hundreds of parts that make up the compliance of a website, and it would require the developer to review thousands of lines of code (line by line) and apply all of these rules manually – costing thousands to you. This would also need to be monitored and maintained over time to make sure it stays compliant, since adding images, video, text and more will all affect this. As you can see, this gets very expensive very quickly, and it is still difficult to ensure every single page is always compliant.
The issue of web accessibility has been increasing in media coverage and conversations more each year. At WebDrafter, we are always on the lookout for changes and updates that can affect our clients’ websites and web presence. That is why six months ago we started seriously researching the topic of web accessibility to see if it is a valid concern to business owners (which it is) and how we can best solve the problem for you.
Once we saw that accessibility was becoming more important for businesses, we began to review and test some different ways to make a website accessible that was more affordable. We found a winning solution for ADA Website compliance that not only had the best results but also the best pricing. This solution utilizes recent breakthroughs in artifical intellignece, allowing a machine to do in just a few minutes what it would take a developer hundreds of hours! In fact, this is the same technology that many law offices and federal agencies use for their own sites!
