Is anyone familiar with how to make a Wild Apricot website ADA Compliant? Our website is on Wild Apricot but we are struggling with finding help.
Hi Will how can we contact you. We use Wild Apricot as a non-profit and have lots of design needs to have the site work better for us. Please let me know your contact info.

OK, so a company I am working for requested I assist in making their website ADA compliant - I could deal with the alt tags and titles code, but one flagged item shows up like this:
"Regions and ARIA landmarks identify significant page areas. Most web pages should have regions defined, particularly for the main content area."
I look at the source code, and these "regions" do exist, but somehow are obfuscated by something else. And how do I deal with this flagged item, "A layout table is present."?
Also "Missing Form Label" uff Wild Apricot themes are not up-to-snuff are they?
Please help! Thank you

I am hoping to hear more info about this, too. We had a report drawn up that states: "Tables" and "Page Regions" need to be compliant...HELP!!
Do you have any plans for adding a ADA compliance widget? This is now going to be a requirement and sites that do not have this can get sued. I had to buy a third party app to get this on my site. You NEED to have this widget ASAP or risk lawsuits.

Hello, I want to let you know that while I love using your platform for our organization’s website. The video tutorials on how to use certain features on Wild Apricot is not ADA compliant.
I am the president of an organization for Sign Language Interpreters in the NYC Metro area and personally love your platform. On the other hand, I know several other Deaf organizations who also use Wild Apricot and they have trouble understanding your tutorials because they do not have subtitles or captions. The great thing about this is that is wouldn’t only benefit those who are deaf but also those who speak another language or for people who are not able to use sound in the environment that they are in.
I hope this tip does not go unnoticed as it would benefit a great deal of people who use your product as well as your company by considering the needs of your consumers.
Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help.
