Small Steps, Big Impact:
Achieving Accessibility Compliance and Risk Mitigation Without Breaking the Bank
This webinar covers the fundamentals of web accessibility that leaders at every organization need to understand. We’ll talk about the laws related to accessibility and share some eye-opening stats on accessibility lawsuits in the US, as well as regulatory cliffs on the horizon that will impact millions of businesses globally.
Attendees will also learn quick tests anyone can run to gauge how accessible their website is. And the presenters will share key action-steps organizations can take to incrementally improve their accessibility, focusing on areas with the highest impact first. And for organizations who are grappling with significant accessibility challenges, the presenters will offer guidance on finding qualified experts to assist.
Finally, we discuss challenges related to accessibility overlays, providing guidance on how to approach internal stakeholders who may be advocating for such solutions. By the end of the session, attendees will have a clear grasp of the current accessibility landscape, practical tools and tests they can run in-house, and advice on engaging experts to help.
