There is guidance to design your website so that it is accessible to individuals with disabilities.
One of the hottest areas under the ADA that affects both employers as employers and in the business as public accommodation is whether or not your online processes, applications, and training programs, are accessible to individuals that are blind or sight impaired. The standard that has been used, even though the government has yet to promulgate official standards, are the web content accessibility guidelines of the World Wide Web Consortium – WCAG 2.0. The DOJ, DOT, OFCCP, and the Access Board have all utilized WCAG 2.0 as the primary standard for website accessibility.
