How to check if your website meets new section 508 accessibility standards
Watch the webinar recording or view the slides
As of January 18, 2018, websites must meet new federal guidelines for website accessibility. In this webinar, we walk through these new requirements, and we show you how to use free testing tools to verify your level of compliance with these new standards.
Just as buildings must have wheelchair ramps, websites must also accommodate those with visual and other disabilities. Section 508 of the US Rehabilitation Act (the part of federal law that defines web accessibility standards) has been revised to include WCAG 2.0 AA (a modern, independent standard for websites.)
This 45-minute webinar is tailored to anyone who manages a website and/or is responsible for compliance with applicable laws. Given the importance of this topic and our evolving knowledge of what it means to be accessible, we hope you will join us in learning about how you can embrace these standards as part of your overall accessibility strategy.
