Anyone who owns or manages a commercial website has no shortage of things to be mindful of these days. This includes everything from proper coding and design elements, to algorithm viability, content accuracy, search engine optimization, navigation protocol and countless other factors. Over the past decade, one of the foremost goals of the World Wide Web Consortium has been to ensure the ongoing compliance of WCAG, or Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, with a more recent push to ensure that ecommerce websites are in line with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).


Your website needs to be all four of the following: Perceivable, Operable, Understandable and Robust. We can help ensure your website (or How Can We Help?):

• Is easy to hear or read
• Operates seamlessly
• Is simple and to the point
• Functions across all devices, including assistive technologies

Yowza will implement and integrate ADA-friendly protocols into each website to ensure compliance with WCAG 2.1, ADA, Section 508, AODA, EN 301549 and IS 5568. Yowza will ensure that all pages are 100% compatible with assistive technologies by:

• Giving alt tags to every image file, video file, audio file, and plug-in
• Providing clear alt descriptions to explain the purpose of objects above
• Creating real-time captions for videos, as well as following embed protocols
• Providing links to resources for people protected under the ADA
• Making sure that there are no images or graphics that could create a flashing or strobe-like effect
• Build “skip navigation” functionality for text reader programs
• Creating and linking to a disability-accessible page with appropriate resources
• Writing detailed text descriptions to accompany complicated graphics, images, or videos
• Providing explicit alternative explanations of links attached to non-traditional web elements
• Implementing tags for columns and rows in data tables
• Ensuring that all tags contain appropriate alt attributes
• Using the LABEL element when form controls require text input
