Ensuring digital accessibility is crucial in providing equal access to essential public services and preventing the exclusion of people with disabilities. In April, the Department of Justice (DOJ) issued its Final Rule mandating that state and local government organizations ensure their websites and mobile apps comply with WCAG 2.1 Level AA standards.

Join us for an insightful webinar dedicated to enhancing the accessibility and inclusivity of your website in light of the latest Department of Justice mandate. We'll explore:

  • • The impact of the recent DOJ ruling on web accessibility for state and local governments

  • • Strategies to improve the inclusivity and accessibility of your web content and documents

  • • The importance of text-to-speech solutions in making your content more accessible

  • • Privacy considerations and WCAG compliance to meet legal and ethical standards

Don’t miss this opportunity to stay ahead of the curve and ensure your website meets the latest accessibility standards. Register now to secure your spot and take a crucial step towards a more inclusive online presence!
