Houston, TX – To support the need to move towards Section 508 compliance, Blue Atlas Marketing is working closely with businesses to create, update, and modernize websites to ensure they meet these requirements. Being ADA Compliant could help companies to have better access to government contract work and it enables them to better meet the needs of their website visitors.
The importance of Section 508 updates
Section 508 website compliance is a component of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. It requires that all federal agencies support access to services for people who have “disabilities.” That term is loosely used to describe people who have hearing, visual impairments, mobility issues, mental health disorders or disabilities, or other conditions that make it difficult for a person to use websites.
While government agencies and those who wish to work with the federal government must have a Section 508 compliant website, the move is beneficial to virtually all business owners and website owners alike.
“Section 508 updates are critical to any website owner that hopes to work with federal and some state agencies, but its reach goes much further. The implementation of these updates is critical to any organization that has clients or customers who may have some type of disability that prohibits them from using a website in the way it does for others. All website owners should work towards this compliance to meet the needs of their client base,” says Alana Maresh, the Programming Manager for Blue Atlas Marketing.
Providing customized support to reach compliance
Many website owners are unsure what to do to meet the goals of having a Section 508 compliant website or worry about the costs, timeline, and benefits. Blue Atlas Marketing offers a customized and tailored plan designed to meet the specific needs of each website owner. By providing a comprehensive overview of the website and reviewing the current method used, Blue Atlas Marketing can help business owners make necessary changes to their websites.
There are various factors to consider, including
Screen reader support
Keyboard input support
Clarity and ease of use
It can be overwhelming for many organizations to know what types of changes they need to make to achieve Section 508 compliance. Yet, with the one-on-one support from the team at Blue Atlas Marketing, organizations gain the hands-on support they need to reach better outcomes.
Having a 508 compliant website is a valuable investment not just for those who need to address access to those who have a disability, but it also overcomes many of the navigational and other limitations website owners face. “Accessibility optimization helps website owners who have high bounce rates due to poor menus and lack of navigation to see improvement. That helps their business model,” states Ms. Maresh.
Making the move to having a Section 508 compliant website is critical for today’s business owners. It can help to improve business operations, website access, and overall use. That includes meeting expectations for mobile devices.
