Millions of Americans are faced with permanent, temporary, or circumstantial disabilities that affect how they use the internet, and your chances of acquiring one of these disabilities increases with age. Most websites do not lawfully comply with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines or the 21st Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act. This makes it difficult, if not impossible, for people who depend on assistive technology to access websites for business, education, entertainment, and to stay in touch with the rest of the world.
Join us for our June webinar during Deafblind Awareness week to learn what you can do to improve the user experience for all your site visitors and help you avoid a costly lawsuit.
You'll develop empathy with visitors by experiencing interactive simulations of what it feels like to have a variety of disabilities in the classroom, and online, and what you can do to help people living with these disabilities.
To participate in the activities:
- Print this work sheet (PDF)
- Bring a crayon or small pencil
- Bring a hand-held mirror
- Bring a few sheets of blank 8.5 x 11” paper
