WCAG Compliant Website Design and Coding

Find Local Company is one of the first Atlanta Website Design agencies to build and code WCAG compliant websites. With the goal of ensuring equal access for all persons, WCAG, or Web Content Accessibility Guidelines represent an important set of technical requirements for websites.

In the process of being adopted worldwide, these guidelines provide an outline for individuals and businesses across all sectors, allowing for equal navigation for those with various types of disabilities.

As an example, WCAG requires an audio file to contain a written transcript, so that individuals that are deaf have a way to obtain information. In the same way, alternative text is added to images, so that individuals that are blind have the ability to understand the image. Additionally, heading structures allow for screen readers to access the site.

While there are varying levels of conformance, WCAG version 2.0 contains the latest criteria and the most up-to-date design, coding, and guidance available for companies that choose to comply with the current recommendations to be ADA friendly.

Why Build a WCAG Compliant Website?

Given the number of persons with disabilities on a global scale, legislation such as the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the United Nations’ Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, and other human rights practices emphasize the responsibility of individuals and businesses to comply with standards that allow those with disabilities to access information in many forums. This includes the Internet.

Compliance with WCAG generates a positive response, even for those without disabilities. Thus, building a WCAG compliant website is beneficial to businesses and helps solidify their place in the market. Simply put, those with disabilities have buying power, and will use ADA friendly websites over those that are not easily accessible. There is some evidence that a WCAG compliant website can also improve ranking in the search results, leading to increased functionality and exposure.

Offering clients WCAG 2.0 compliant website design, Atlanta-based Find Local Company helps individuals and organizations ensure that their websites is usable and equally accessible to all. Contact us today to discuss your WCAG compliant website, we look forward to speaking with you.

Outstanding Company with great Customer Support. We have been a customer of Find Local Company for over 6 years. When we found them our business was a little over a year old using a website we developed. It was failing. After switching to Find Local Company our results have been amazing. We are a healthy and growing HVAC company in the competitive Atlanta Metro Area. I credit Find Local Company with not only saving our business but helping us to grow. They will be an important part of our marketing for the foreseeable future.

I have worked with the team at Find Local for many years and I have to say that they are the most knowledgeable SEO company around. They always explain their strategy in a way that anyone can understand and what they tell me always makes perfect sense. In addition to getting the website to show up very well for many different search terms anytime I need anything, their customer service desk responds almost immediately, even after hours and during holiday's. If you are looking to work with an honest straightforward SEO company that continues to deliver excellent customer service year after year then I highly recommend Find Local Company.

The team is not only responsive and dedicated to their client's success, but they are absolute experts in search engine optimization. The work is professional and they are constantly expanding their knowledge of the industry. I would highly recommend them as the top Atlanta internet marketing company.

Find Local is a fantastic web design and SEO company that has been tremendously helpful to me in promoting my practice. I practice in a very competitive market as a facial plastic surgeon in New York City. Find Local has been instrumental in helping me substantially increase my web presence. They seamlessly integrate my internet and social media presence while helping me manage my Google Adword campaign. Mike and his team are responsive, honest, and extremely competent. I recommend them with the greatest enthusiasm.

This group is absolutely top notch and ever impressive. I'm a plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills and somehow in the world of none existent SEO strategy, Find local company has taken me to the top! If you search the most competitive terms such as facelift in beverly hills, i pop up and i've only been around there for 2 years. Other surgeons have been fighting for these positions for 15 years plus. I love them and will remain loyal no matter how many others approach me for my web design and management.
