Accessibility for Disabled Users

When setting up your website, it's important to make sure that the content is accessible to disabled users, such as people who are sight-impaired, or can not perceive color differences.   This has become an important issue in the industry especially since a Supreme Court ruling against Domino's Pizza confirmed the importance of making your site accessible to all. 

The Web Content Accessibility Guideline (WCAG 2.0) is the standard widely used to ensure a website is accessible. WCAG 2.1 sets forward 14 guidelines to follow.  While there is no central authority that certifies sites as compliant with WCAG 2.1, various technology tools are available to scan the site and report on compliance.    To learn more about WCAG, read this article.

Thrive Online, in its base configuration, has passed these scans at a level "AA" compliance.

Customizations that you make to your site can impact this compliance.  For example, selecting a color palette with insufficient contrast, or adding custom CSS has the potential to put elements out of compliance.  

If you are concerned about compliance with this standard, please contact your Thrive account manager.  We offer a service to scan your site and assist with compliance updates.   You can also download a browser add-on that will enable you to conduct a preliminary scan.   

Legal Disclaimer:  WCAG 2.1 is a voluntary standard and a widely recognized guideline for accessibility, however meeting this standard does not guarantee legal protection.  To ensure compliance, you should contract with a professional compliance auditor who will test your site thoroughly. State statutes may vary. Granbury Solutions is not liable for any legal actions or settlements related to accessibility for individual merchant accounts.
