The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with a disability. In several court decisions, including the landmark Supreme Court case of Dominos vs. Robles, it has been established that websites are considered “places of public accommodation” subject to the ADA. 

While the ADA does not provide a set of specific requirements for website accessibility, the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) AA 2.1, a global set of standards, have been established as the acceptable legal standard through thousands of court decisions.
