3G The ADA, the Web, and You
The Americans with Disabilities Act mandates that public entities and private places of public accommodation must not discriminate against people with disabilities when they offer programs, services, or activities. The ADA also requires covered entities to provide effective communication. Entities large and small use technology like the web and software to do all of those things. This session will examine accessibility in technology in the context of the ADA, helping participants to understand more about how covered entities should approach implementing a technology accessibility program. We will talk about some of the ways that entities large and small can approach accessible technology use and acquisition. We will not go through web accessibility standards one by one, but you will learn a few techniques that you can begin to use to lead by example.
