Ensure Equitable Access to Local Information
56 million Americans live with a disability. Your municipality has a responsibility to ensure all digital communications are accessible by each and every citizen, including those with visual, auditory, and physical impairments.
The first step to ensuring compliance is to evaluate your website using the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), an international standard that is backed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI). Use our checklist to compare your current website against the latest standards. If you find your website will need updates to meet the latest requirements, our civic website design experts are prepared to help you make the necessary updates.
