ADA compliance is no longer a nice to have, but rather: a must have for your website. In fact your website might be in danger of a lawsuit for failure to meet certain UI/UX standards. ADA compliance is a must for any e-commerce, educational, or business website.
Where to Start
Fix the basics
Start with the simple things: alt text on images, form labels, and correct header tag configuration.

Utilize disabled users in your audtiing process – manual auditing remains a key part in remediiation of ADA compliance issues for your website.
