For ADA website compliance, the Courts have recognized web accessibility standards, called the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (WCAG 2.0/2.1), created by an international, and Globally recognized consortium of volunteers.
Just a few of the dozens of requirements found within the WCAG Guidelines are:
- Content must be coded for audio translation by screen-reader software.
- Adding Descriptive Image ALT tags
- There must be on-screen captions in videos for screen-reader software to read to the blind and descriptions for the deaf.
- Sites must include accessible drop-down menus for those who use a keyboard as an alternative to a mouse.
