ADA and Web Content Accessibility
The ability for your website to serve the needs of all visitors, including those with disabilities is not only likely going to be a legal requirement someday soon, but it's a good thing to do. By making sure your site is ADA and WCAG 2.o compliant, it opens up your information to an entirely new audience of customers. In the United States alone, that's 53 million people (according to the CDC).
Below is a collection of documents and articles that we have provided to help you "get your head" around this issue of web content accessibility. Be sure to check out the W3C's WCAG 2.0 at a Glance for some technical details on what it takes to make your site compliant and as we find more information, we'll be sure to add it to the list below.

Oh, and be sure to check out Chris Hofstader's blog. He's a disability rights advocate (who also happens to be blind) and wrote a pretty awesome post entitled Stopping The ADA Trolls: Carlson/Lynch Should Sue Itself.
