New Car Dealers rely more and more on sales and/or leads generated from their websites. In the past, dealerships, like other businesses, have seen claims under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) related to access to the dealership’s physical faculty. We are now seeing an explosion of ADA claims and litigation focused on an alleged lack of accessible features provided by websites.   Currently, there are no clear standards, regulations or guidelines provided by the Department of Justice (DOJ) or by the Courts regarding making a website “accessible” to persons with different disabilities, including persons who have visual disability and who may use a “screen reader” to describe the content of the website.  This program describes the best practices and approaches to avoid such claims, together with strategies to best deal with the lack of clear standards and guidelines.  The program discusses WCAG “guidelines” and outlines methods of testing websites, the use of plug-ins and accessibility apps, what they do and what they do not do, how to handle video content, Accessibility Statements, best methods to address a disabled user’s specific concerns, including how to implement a helpline to assist with access, and ongoing testing, review, and maintenance.
