What does credit union ADA compliance look like?
An accessible member experience involves creating a user-friendly, inclusive, and barrier-free online environment that caters to all members, including those with disabilities.
Our solutions involve evaluating, designing, and implementing various accessibility features, such as screen reader compatibility, keyboard navigation, and alternative text for images, in compliance with established guidelines from the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). Our standard for ADA compliance is WCAG 2.1, Level AA. Beyond the initial site compliance, we recommend regular scans to ensure ongoing accessibility.
Clear and consistent navigation
Ensure menus, headers, and links are easy to understand and navigate, providing a consistent experience across all pages.
Enable users to navigate the website using only a keyboard, without relying on a mouse or touch input.
Screen reader compatibility
Design the website so that it works seamlessly with screen readers, which read aloud the content for visually impaired users.
Closed captions and transcripts
Offer closed captions for video content and transcripts for audio content, ensuring that hearing-impaired users can access multimedia information.
Contrasting font sizes and colors
Allow users to customize font sizes and use high contrast colors through their device to improve readability and accommodate various visual impairments.
Descriptive and meaningful link text
Use clear and specific link text that accurately reflects the linked content, making it easier for users to understand and navigate.
Proper heading structure
Organize content using hierarchical headings (H1, H2, H3, etc.) to provide a clear structure and enable easier navigation for screen reader users.
Accessible forms and input fields
Design forms with clear labels, instructions, and error messages, ensuring that all users can easily complete and submit information.
Compliance with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG)
Adhere to the WCAG standards to ensure a consistently accessible experience for all users.
