Web Accessibility & The Law: The 10 Most Common Web Accessibility Issues Addressed
Wednesday, June 18th, 1-2:30pm ET
According to the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) regulation (Integrated Accessibility Standard), as of January 1, 2014, organizations with over 50 employees and all public sector groups with employees based in Ontario, when developing new websites, must ensure such websites adhere to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0). This makes it easier for people with disabilities to access information (i.e., visual, hearing, motor, cognitive disabilities, etc.).
Due to the complexity of the WCAG 2.0 guidelines, many groups are struggling with how to make websites and documentation (i.e., PDFs) fully comply with this newer legislation.
In this 90-minute webinar, Andrew Schiestel (President at tbk Creative & AODA Online) and Andre LeFort (VP Technology at tbk Creative & AODA Online) will cover:
- Your organization’s obligations under the Integrated Accessibility Standard (IASR) under the AODA
- The most commonly asked web accessibility, AODA, and WCAG 2.0 questions answered
- The 10 most common web accessibility issues and tips to remediate
- A question and answer period for your organization at the end
