Website Accessibility Statement - California Cannabis Industry

Apr 29, 2018


Welcome to Lifeline Computer Services, a leading provider of website development services for the California Cannabis Industry. In this web accessibility statement, we aim to ensure that our website is accessible to all users, including those with disabilities. We are committed to providing a positive user experience for everyone who visits our site.

Cannabis Industry and Online Presence

The California Cannabis Industry is rapidly expanding, with more businesses getting involved in this thriving market. As the industry evolves, it is crucial for cannabis businesses to establish a strong online presence. A well-designed and accessible website plays a vital role in reaching a wider audience and attracting potential customers.

Understanding Web Accessibility

Web accessibility refers to the inclusive practice of designing and developing websites that can be easily accessed and used by individuals with disabilities. This includes people with visual impairments, hearing loss, mobility challenges, and cognitive disabilities.

The Importance of Web Accessibility for Cannabis Businesses

Ensuring web accessibility for cannabis businesses is not only a moral obligation but also a legal requirement. Under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), businesses are obligated to make reasonable accommodations to ensure equal access to their goods and services, including their online presence.

By ensuring your cannabis website is accessible, you can:

  • Expand your customer base by reaching individuals with disabilities
  • Create a positive brand image by promoting inclusivity
  • Comply with legal regulations and avoid potential lawsuits
  • Enhance user experience and satisfaction

Website Accessibility Guidelines

At Lifeline Computer Services, we follow industry-standard web accessibility guidelines to ensure that our clients' websites meet the highest accessibility standards. Some of the key accessibility considerations we address include:

1. Keyboard Accessibility

We design websites that can be fully navigated using a keyboard alone. This ensures that individuals who are unable to use a mouse can still navigate and interact with the website effectively.

2. Alternative Text for Images

All images on our websites are accompanied by appropriate alternative text. This ensures that users with visual impairments who rely on screen readers can understand the content of the images.

3. Color and Contrast

We carefully consider color choices and contrast ratios to ensure that text and other important elements are easily readable for individuals with visual impairments or color blindness.

4. Clear and Consistent Navigation

We strive to provide clear and consistent navigation throughout our websites. This includes well-structured headings, logical tab order, and easily identifiable links, making it easier for all users to navigate the site.

5. Video and Audio Accessibility

For websites that include videos or audio content, we ensure that appropriate captions or transcripts are provided to make the content accessible to hearing-impaired individuals.

Our Commitment to Accessibility

At Lifeline Computer Services, we are committed to ensuring that web accessibility is a top priority in all our website development projects. By staying up-to-date with the latest accessibility guidelines and best practices, we strive to create websites that are accessible to all users.
