ADA Complaint Site Guidelines

Marc Pinnell-3
Hoping someone out there has some experience working with government agencies and is willing to share....

Signed a contract with a new client last week that is a county government agency. Today she drops this little bomb on me:

I left you a message regarding integrating these elements into our website. Please take a look and let me know via email or phone if this is something you can do and if you need to increase the dollar amount to implement the necessary ADA components.

Most of that stuff is pretty straight forward, but this one confuses me (maybe I am overthinking it):

        • Make sure the page does not contain repeatedly flashing images

Does that refer to your standard slideshow on the home page that everyone wants or something else?

Something else.  Think blink tag.

Regardless, when the scope expands, so should your
compensation.  Ask for more money.

ADA compliance on the web is ambiguous, confusing, often
conflicting, and subjective.  Every public agency has their own
interpretation of what it means on the web.  The client must
define what ADA compliance means to them, and you should never
interpret it for them.  It's a nasty liability issue, and you do
not want to step into it.

I thought it was kinda funny she sent me a link to an article on the web vs a document from her agency!

I can definitely see this expanding the time to completion on this site greatly.

Re: ADA Complaint Site Guidelines

In reply to this post by Marc Pinnell-3
We had to do 508 (ADA) compliance on a couple of our websites.  It's not terrible, but it is a time suck.  And yes, a lot of it is very subjective, so it's often a matter of what's defensible.  Some technologies are just not 508 compliant, such as HighCharts.

And if I understand correctly, the rules regarding 508 compliance recently changed.  Make sure the sites you're using as 508 guides are current on the new requirements.

To expand and explain. This is since repeatedly flashing images, or rather repeatedly flashing light, can trigger an epileptic attack.
