DOJ Releases ADA Website Accessibility Tools

The Department of Justice recently published an “ADA Best Practices Tool Kit,” which includes website accessibility guidance and a checklist that can be used to verify compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

While the tool kit is primarily geared toward state and local governments, which are governed by Title II of the ADA, it will be helpful to banks working on improving website accessibility. The DOJ has indicated that the Title II rulemaking will significantly impact the website accessibility standards ultimately promulgated under the Title III regulations, which are expected to be issued in 2018.

The guidance identifies common website accessibility problems and proposes solutions and other considerations that are useful in developing ADA compliant websites. It also includes a detailed action plan for making existing web content accessible. The checklist is intended to guide preliminary assessments of website accessibility, and policies and procedures for maintaining website accessibility.
