Websites: ADA Compliant

W3CJust returned from Washington D.C. and the NAR mid year meetings and I have learned that we may face legalities over our websites.  We may be facing alleged violations of federal Americans with Disabilities Act. The only problem is that we are not sure exactly what the standards are. So the Department of Justice was going to release rules this year but now will not until 2018.  However,  there is a Web Content Accessibility Guidelines standard published by the World Wide Web Consortium.  This tells us what we should be doing, and we are told what the DOJ favors.  However, hopefully the DOJ will be more specific on exactly what real estate companies should be doing.

So my fellow REALTORS, thank you for your attendance, your work on the various issues that confront us, for the hill visits to our legislators, and thanks for all you do for all of us.  Until next Monday….let’s be good to each other, let’s be REALTORS.

Thank You 3

Until Next Monday…
