ADA Accessibility

Starting in January of 2018, Section 508 of the Federal Rehabilitation Act required that online documents be accessible to people using assistive technology (screen readers, magnifiers and mouse alternatives.) The concept is simple, but many local governments struggle with remediating documents and staying within compliance. This latest computer class offering will help your team build accessible documents from scratch and remediate existing documents in
the public realm.
