At UsableNet, we often find companies have invested some time and resources into the hard work required to make their digital assets accessible. 

Yet, maintenance, especially in today's world of highly technical websites with regularly scheduled enhancements and sometimes rapid code changes, can be a challenge.

To help client companies, and when applicable their digital agencies, maintain accessibility and a commitment to digital inclusion and the disability community, UsableNet has launched our innovative new ADA monitoring service

We’ve designed ADA Monitoring to be the most cost-effective solution on the market today that involves regular website testing by people with disabilities

THE LEGAL LANDSCAPE for App and Web Accessibility 

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) celebrated it's 30 year anniversary last year. 

A hard-fought victory for people with disabilities, the ADA is the most sweeping piece of civil rights legislation passed to protect the rights of people with disabilities. Yet more than 30 years later, there's still more work to be done

Since 2018, plaintiffs have filed thousands of lawsuits, citing inaccessible websites, mobile apps, and, increasingly videos, alleging violations of Title III of the ADA.

At UsableNet, we monitor ADA lawsuits for digital accessibility closely. Our recently released 2020 recap report found more than 3,000 digital accessibility lawsuits filed last year, a 23% increase over 2019.
