Event Description

OVERVIEW

The Web is an increasingly important resource in many aspects of life: education, employment, government, commerce, health care, recreation, and more. It is essential that the Web be accessible to provide equal access and equal opportunity to people with diverse abilities.

The Web offers the possibility of unprecedented access to information and interaction for many people with disabilities. The accessibility barriers to print, audio, and visual media can be much more easily overcome through web technologies.

There is also a strong business case for accessibility. Accessibility overlaps with other best practices such as mobile web design, device independence, usability, design for older users, and search engine optimization. Accessible websites can have better search results, reduced maintenance costs, increased audience reach, and demonstrate corporate social responsibility.

WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND

There are many reasons why employers need to ensure their website and mobile applications are compliant with various web accessibility laws in the United States. Aside from wanting to avoid potential fines and lawsuits, it’s possible that your business is missing out on leads because they can’t use your site.

When websites and web tools are properly designed and coded, people with disabilities can use them. However, currently many sites and tools are developed with accessibility barriers that make them difficult or impossible for some people to use.

Making the web accessible benefits individuals, businesses, and society. International web standards define what is needed for accessibility and organizations can assess their website through web accessibility evaluation tool.
