Your Business Website & Compliance with the American’s With Disability Act Compliance - Online

Thu 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM

Is your business at risk for ADA web accessibility lawsuits? There are two amazing reasons for you to ensure your compliance. First, if individuals with disabilities (hearing, site, other) are not able to access your web-presence, you are missing out on potential customers. Second, it’s the law. During the last 4 years there has been a staggering rise in the number of ADA lawsuits filed against businesses and entities of all sizes for non-compliance of the guidelines for digital information. It is important that you learn how to remove barriers to ensure that everyone can reach, understand and interact with your website and online material, as well as learn how to protect your business against litigation and the crippling effect that expensive lawsuits and attorney’s fees could bring. In this seminar, you will learn about the Americans with Disabilities Act and how it applies to your business’ digital presence. Discover what makes a website accessible and how to meet standards for accessibility as set forth in the WCAG, (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines). Learn how to create content and navigation that follows legal standards and best practices, and also provides the best possible user experience. Explore resources and tools that can help assess and improve your web accessibility, and much more!
