Twenty Over Ten has ADA compliance and accessibility features built into our frameworks. We also help by having responsive design options, resizable text, and flexible color and layout options.
That’s a great foundation, but it is up to you to ensure that every aspect of the content you’re putting into your website is compliant. For a full list of requirements, please click this link.

Here are additional things you can do
Upgrade to your Latest Framework Version
We’re constantly updating our platform and our frameworks, and we recommend you periodically check your framework to make sure it’s on the latest version. You can check and upgrade via the site settings tab and by following these steps.
Just be sure to click ‘change framework’ and ensure you’re using the most recent version of your chosen framework.
Add Descriptive Alt Text To All Images
We offer a helpful feature to describe the content of your images – alt Text. It allows you to describe the image for search engines. Alt Text is also used by screen readers to describe your content to the visually impaired. Adding Alt Text to existing images is the most common “retrofit” needed to make a site more accessible.

Use Descriptive Text For Titles, Headings, and Links
Remember what a title or heading would sound like to someone listening to them read out as if they were a table of contents.
Twenty Over Ten allows gives you creative freedom when editing or creating your website, but you want to remember that the structure of your pages (how they are nested) and the page titles you use to describe are representative of what’s on the page.
Use High Contrast Colors
Our design flexibility allows you to make decisions with color via the site settings > styles. Regular body text should stand out from the background (black on white, for example). It’s a very different rule than you’d use for the colors in your logo.
We recommend using these following resources for guidance:
Choose Videos With Closed Captioning
If you’re using video, but sure to include Closed Captioning wherever they are available, and choose videos and video services that allow for closed captioning.
