Accessibility & ADA


Accessibility is not just a feature; it’s a necessity. At MEPS, we understand that technology serves its fullest purpose when it’s accessible to everyone, regardless of physical or cognitive abilities. This belief aligns seamlessly with our core values of providing a wide range of technology services that are as inclusive as they are innovative. Given our extensive experience in cybersecurity, IT consulting, and government services, we appreciate the necessity of compliance with laws and regulations like the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). This article aims to elucidate our commitment to accessibility and ADA compliance, detailing why it’s crucial in today’s digital age.

What is ADA Compliance?

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was enacted in 1990 to prohibit discrimination based on disability. Title III of the ADA was updated to include websites and mobile applications for businesses classified as “public accommodations.” Compliance with the ADA means making your website or app accessible to all users, including those with disabilities such as visual impairment, hearing loss, or limited mobility.

Why is Accessibility Important?

Ethical Implications
Accessibility is fundamentally a question of equality; all users should have equal access to information and opportunities. With the internet permeating every aspect of our lives—from education and employment to socializing and shopping—it’s unjust to deny access to this resource based on physical or cognitive limitations.

Business Benefits

Accessibility can significantly benefit businesses as well. An accessible website reaches a broader audience, enhancing the user experience and potentially increasing customer engagement and retention. In some cases, better accessibility can even lead to improved search engine rankings.

Legal Requirements

Non-compliance with ADA guidelines can result in hefty fines and legal challenges. For organizations, particularly those involved in public sector work, this non-compliance is not only costly but can also tarnish reputations and result in lost contracts.

How MEPS Ensures Accessibility and ADA Compliance

Initial Assessment
We start by conducting an exhaustive assessment of your current digital assets to identify any accessibility gaps. Using specialized software and manual testing, we check for compatibility with screen readers, keyboard navigation, and other assistive technologies.

Remediation & Development

Our team of experts then works to close these gaps, ensuring your digital assets are accessible to everyone. Given our proficiency in software and web development, we can either remediate existing platforms or develop new, fully compliant ones from scratch.

Ongoing Monitoring

Accessibility is not a one-time achievement but an ongoing commitment. MEPS offers continuous monitoring services to ensure that your website or application remains up-to-date with the latest accessibility standards and regulations.

Training and Consultation

As part of our IT consulting services, we offer training sessions to your team, educating them on the importance of accessibility and how to maintain it. We also provide ongoing consultation to ensure that any future digital projects are built with accessibility in mind from the ground up.


At MEPS, we believe that accessible technology is better technology. Accessibility enriches the user experience for everyone and ensures that no one is left behind. By adhering to ADA compliance, we don’t just follow the law; we adhere to a higher ethical standard. As we continue to offer top-tier services in cybersecurity, digital forensics, and more, our commitment to accessibility and ADA compliance remains steadfast. Because in a world increasingly driven by technology, inclusion is not just an option; it’s a responsibility.
