Accessibility Is Law

In the United States, the American With Disabilities Act or ADA and in Canada the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act or AODA are laws in place to ensure fair and equal access to all citizens when it comes to things like banking, government services, education, and yes online real estate information.

If your website does not attempt to be ADA or AODA compliant, you may also be committing a fair housing violation which is a very serious offense and can hard your reputation if found guilty.

Accessible Is Good For Your Brand

When you take that important step towards accessibility you signal to the marketplace that you are truly a leader in your community. 

You can also leverage your status as an accessible company in marketing campaigns, to build relationships with businesses that also support ADA and to show agents you care about your consumers in your recruiting campaigns.

Widgets Are Not Accessible

Many companies sell accessible "widgets" that you can place on your website. They claim that these widgets somehow many your website WCAG 2.1 or ADA compliant. This is not true.

Generally what those widgets do is attempt to emulate assistive technologies (AT) that those with disabilities might use. The problem is, your disabled visitors already have their own AT solutions and that is not what they need. They need your code and your content to be constructed in a way that when their readers encounter it, they can make sense of what is being shared. 

When a screen reader reads "mandatory field 1" you can be pretty sure that is not going to help that customer know what they are supposed to enter.
