Welcome to DDA Audit. DDA stands for Disability Discrimination Act, and covers the way your company treat disabled visitors. It is not just an online regulation - it legislates for access to buildings, products and services.
Fewer than 75% of the FTSE100 companies currently have accessible websites. This will soon lead to a confrontation - it is said that the Royal National Institute of the Blind (RNIB) have considered taking up a number of cases against organisations that have non-compliant websites. The companies have made amendments to avoid legal action, so far, but this will not last.
Still not convinced? The Disability Rights Commission (DRC) made a formal investigation into 1,000 websites (opens a new window). If your website is on there, you may have to move faster than you thought.
The information is available on the Internet to allow you to undertake your own audit, and if successful, to display the internationally recognised accessibility logos. Unfortunately, you may not have the time or the skills to understand the findings of the audit, and this is where we can help.
We have developed a DDA Audit that will identify what you are doing well, what you are doing badly, and how you can best utilise your resources and get your website legal. Call us today to get a DDA Audit.
