Website Accessibility

Stay up-to-date on the latest in website accessibility and ADA compliance guidelines.

Your Website and ADA Compliance

You may have heard buzz recently about new ADA website compliance guidelines. Read our latest blog post to learn what ADA compliance means and what we’re doing at Perfect Patients to make sure your website is accessible to everyone.


PDF Accessibility

In an effort to make your website accessible to everyone, including those with disabilities, and to adhere to website accessibility standards, we highly recommend that all PDF’s added to your site be Accessible PDF’s.

Accessible PDFs allow users of adaptive technology to navigate your content. Without this functionality, adaptive technology may interpret the document in the wrong order, without important graphics, or in a format too jumbled for the user to comprehend.

So when it comes to adding PDFs to your website, you have 3 options:

1. Work with a specialist to make your PDFs accessible (what we recommend)

Your office paperwork doesn’t change too often, so it might be worth sending your PDF’s to a document accessibility specialist so you can keep your paperwork on your website. The good news is there are companies that specialize in PDF accessibility. That’s all they do, and it’s affordable. If you’re interested, here are a couple of options:

2. We can remove all PDF’s from your website

If you don’t want to ensure accessibility by working with a PDF specialist, we suggest removing the PDF’s from your website.

3. Keep your PDF’s on your website as is (we do not recommend this)

Aside from being the right thing to do, many jurisdictions have website compliance guidelines in place to ensure business sites are accessible by all. We do not suggest leaving inaccessible PDFs on your website.

As always, our goal is to help you reach more new patients and we feel that making the content on your website more accessible is just another way to extend your reach.
