Government ADA compliance for municipal websites
Providing access to citizens living with disabilities is an essential role of government. The City of Kingsport has always responded to their citizens with adherence to accessibility opportunities, and their website is no exception.
Kingsport’s internal ADA transition team and Six Rivers Digital worked together to implement a comprehensive compliance strategy for the community website at http://www.kingsporttn.gov.
With thousands of pages and media content, our developers used sophisticated AI technologies to scan and identify aesthetic, contextual, and functional attributes that did not meet requirements set forth by the W3C. Together, we systematically organized a plan using digital reports and including human consultation from readers with disabilities to ensure realistic and real-world compliance functions.
As the site moved toward greater compliance levels, we also implemented a daily reporting system to identify issues with ongoing content contributions. These reports enable easy identification of problems and employ a task management process to ensure quick solutions to respond to new accessibility requirements.
ADA compliance is one of the most critical considerations for modern government platforms. At Six Rivers Digital, we provide an expert team of site analysts, developers, and creative partners to help you and your organization identify, reduce, and optimize your website for the highest level of compliance.
