Meeting accessibility guidelines (ADA)

Ecwid is designed with accessibility in mind and you can be sure that your Ecwid store is a welcoming place for everyone. Your store doesn’t have any access barriers, you can sell online to people with disabilities - to visually-impaired buyers that have to use screen readers for browsing online shops or buyers that navigate with keyboard only. And you can be sure that your store follows ADA standards (ADA is short for the Americans with Disabilities Act, which became law in 1990).

We have tested Ecwid storefront manually and automatically for accessibility to ensure that content is reachable and visible to screen readers and keyboard users. Here are some of the main aspects of accessible design that we have covered, to name a few:

  • intuitive navigation throughout the store (including breadcrumbs),
  • proper labels and clear error messages in form fields (e.g. in the address forms in checkout),
  • accurate alternative text for product and category images,
  • adjustable color contrast for text.

If you have added Ecwid to your own site, you need to ensure that your website is ADA compliant as well. You can check how accessible your site is using, for example, the built-in tools in Google Chrome browser.

Otherwise, you can use the store with a free Instant Site that successfully passed accessibility tests along with Ecwid storefront.
