ADA (American Disability Act) compliance is when your website meets the guidelines set by the ADA. It makes your website easier for screen readers. The policies are set to make it easier for disabled people to use a website. Some of the things that it includes are:

  • Text large enough to read without zooming the page
  • Text that has enough contrast to be seen and read easily
  • Images that have Alt tags (this is what the screen readers use to describe the image)
  • The content uses headings and titles
  • The website colors have sufficient contrast
  • The website is easy to navigate
  • The website does not use PDF documents
  • Videos are captioned

There is more involved with the coding of your website. This list is just the basics.
