ADA Compliant Digital Forms

A requirement for compliance with ADA accessibility standards and greater inclusivity.

All government agencies are required to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) guidance for web accessibility. The ADA requires that title II entities (state and local governments) ensure that communication with people with disabilities is equally effective as communication with people without disabilities.

ADA compliance extends to all PDF forms, which are often the first point of contact with your constituents for sending information and requesting services.

SimpliGov transforms non-compliant PDF forms with our configurable form builder that creates secure, accessible forms in HTML5 language to improve the user experience, support digital inclusivity,  and maximize the value of form data. In addition, form data becomes accessible for trending, insights, and analysis to make better business decisions.

Why should your agency transition to HTML5 forms?

  • Provide greater accessibility and a modern online experience for anyone using computers, tablets, or smartphones.
  • Improves quality of life for disabled persons through greater access to services
  • Use logic that helps increase interaction, minimize frustration, reduce inputting errors, and capture valid data in form fields.
  • Extract valuable data for actionable intelligence while populating the data into PDF documents.
  • Integrate form data into any agency system of record for data consistency and integrity.
  • Align with current WCAG guidelines for accessible digital forms and comply with ADA.
  • Increase constituent satisfaction, engage the organization, and minimize legal risk.
  • Use form data to seamlessly initiate structured, repeatable workflows within SimpliGov to manage business processes from end-to-end.
