Over the past couple of years there has been increased activity for lawsuits involving compliance with Website Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). WCAG help provide protection for the visually and hearing impaired from being discriminated against when accessing a website. Public gardens have been proactive in providing a positive guest experience for all. Not only should your garden be ADA compliant but it is important that your website reflect the same. Unfortunately, violation of these guidelines can result in litigation which can be costly in both legal fees and potential settlement.
