ADA Title III is a Regulation that prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability in the activities of places of “public accommodation” which for physical locations, are usually businesses that are generally open to the public and which fall into one of 12 categories listed by the ADA, to comply with the ADA Standards. However,
Any business that has a physical location tied to its website, or any business that operates by the website only, is required to comply to ADA Title III regulations and must make their websites accessible to ALL users, including the members of the disabled community.
Just as your physical location must by physically accessible to members of the disabled community, so must your website be “digitally accessible” to disabled individuals who rely on the use of Assistive Technologies such as screen readers, audio transcribers, etc.
