Does the ADA apply to websites?

Yes, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) applies to websites for Title II and Title III. Title II covers state and local government and their related entities while Title III addresses public accommodations such as businesses and nonprofits. The difficulty is that as of now, there are no specific standards defined by the Department of Justice (DOJ), the federal department that creates the regulations for Title II and III of the ADA. That being said, the DOJ has held for many years that the ADA does apply as shown in Chapter 5 of the ADA Best Practices Toolkit for State and Local Governments and to Title III public accommodations in its September 25, 2018 letter to Representative Ted Budd of North Carolina.
