What/Why

Market.  Did you know that 22% of the US population has some sort of auditory, visual or physical disability?   If your website is not American Disability Act (ADA) compliant, you are not reaching this invisible market. That is 22% of the market that can’t buy or be informed by your website!  ADA Buzz will help you access that market.

Legal.  ADA stands for the American Disability Act of 1990.  It is a U.S. civil rights law that prohibits discrimination based on disability. Under Title I of the ADA, any business with at least 15 full-time employees that operates for 20 or more weeks every year, is covered by the law. Whether it is a bathroom or a website, if they are not ADA compliant, they are vulnerable to an ADA lawsuit. Lawsuits have been increasing exponentially over the last 10 years.   

Beyonce’s website is under fire for its lack of accessibility. Domino Pizza is fighting the Supreme Court over a website accessibility lawsuit filed by a blind customer.  In 2018, there were 2,285 lawsuits regarding accessibility for internet users with disabilities; that is a 177 percent increase over 2017.

Doing the Right Thing. Do you know someone who is visually, auditorily or physically impaired?  Ask them to show you how they interface with the internet.

Awareness & Insights


Visually impaired people can’t see, but they can hear. They need to have photos and videos described auditorily. The ADA Buzz team will make sure your graphic interface is translated for those who can not see.  Voice Over software can be used on the Mac.  There is also ChromeVox. Both are screen readers created by Google that allow users to browse the Internet with the aid of synthesized speech played through their speakers or headphones. It is available as an extension for Google Chrome on both Windows and MacOS.   Weekly shopping online is easier than walking around a shop, when visually impaired.

Auditorily impaired people can’t hear, but they can see. They need to have podcasts and videos voice and sound described visually. They may use adaptive hardware, touch screens, alternative keyboards and mice, and magnification and screen-reading software.

The ADA Buzz Team will make sure your audio interface is accurately captioned, for those who can not hear.

Physically impaired people can see and hear, but they may have difficulty using a conventional mouse and keyboard. The ADA Buzz Team will make sure that menus, links, search and other web page interfaces are easy to click on with the interface tools they are using. 

People who are impaired with more than one disability, will be able to interface via the three different modalities.

About Us


ADA Buzz is a team that works 24/7/365 from 4 offices all over the world: San Francisco, Karachi, Dubai and Sri Lanka. 

Michelle Dragony and Imran Alavi met in 2016 at a business networking meeting in Pacifica, California. Three years later, Silicon Valley native, Michelle noticed websites were not ADA compliant and that lawsuits were starting to happen.  Michelle kept mentioning this to Imran over a 6 month period, but there was very little federal guidance. Then NPR got sued. 

Having been a computer teacher, Michelle was more concerned that people didn’t have access to the internet; it has been 30 years since the ADA law passed!

Imran’s Proleadsoft team leapt into action in late 2019 and developed a plan of action which is now ADA Buzz.  The ADA Buzz team would build a portal where website owners and developers interface with the ADA Buzz team. ADA Buzz would also build a marketing website (where you are right now) that would draw people in and educate them on this new ADA internet evolution.

Vision & Values

If you just want to look at it from a strictly commercial perspective, if sites don’t consider disabled users, they’re missing out on a huge chunk of the market,” says Sandi Wassmer, a technologist and design expert who registered blind in 2008.

Accessibility Statement

ADA Buzz is focused on making its site open to individuals with impairment, and our objective is to convey a web experience that is lined up with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1, explicitly the “AA” rules.

Blog

If your law firm’s website is not accessible to people with disabilities, you may be missing out on a big chunk of your potential client base. More than 20 percent of Americans live with some sort of disability and people over the age of 65 account for about 15 percent of the population.
