Apple sued over claims website is inaccessible to visually impaired users

Apple has become the target of a new lawsuit, one that claims the iPhone producer`s website is violating the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) by not being fully accessible to blind or visually-impaired consumers, due to the way the website itself is coded.
In preparation for the release of WCAG 2.2 in December 2022, EqualWeb has already updated its web accessibility technology to meet the new guidelines, ensuring its clients are ready in advance for future requirements and regulations.
Web accessibility certification is used for internal legal purposes to expound on the remediation process the website has undergone.
In a web accessibility certificate, also known as a certificate of performance, you will receive verification of the standards the website was remediated against, a list of the accessibility modifications that the web accessibility solution provider performed on the website, and the accessibility functions that exist on the website and may be used by visitors.
Note: a web accessibility certification should not be confused with an accessibility statement, which is required to feature on a website in accordance with the law. While similar, the accessibility statement is more of a general summary of the accessibility enhancements that feature on the website, although there are some functions that overlap between the two.
