Hosted by Monsido, formerly part of the CivicPlus® Civic Experience Platform and now powered by Acquia, this webinar offers a comprehensive approach to accessibility and its relevance to websites. Our expert speaker covers a diverse range of topics, including disabilities, assistive technology, accessibility laws and regulations, and common accessibility obstacles across the internet.

During the 90-minute recorded training session, you will learn:

  • What accessibility means in the online realm
  • How people with disabilities access the web
  • WCAG 2.0 standards
  • Laws and regulations about accessibility
  • Keyboard, text, structure, and contrast requirements
  • How to get in compliance

Remember, as a government entity, your website is the foundation of your information-sharing and resident resource strategy. It must comply with digital accessibility requirements set forth by the U.S. Department of Justice.

Watch the recording for practical tips to remain compliant and ensure every member of your community can access, understand, and use your website — including those with disabilities.
