In January 2017, the United States Access Board issued the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Standards and Guidelines, which served to update the existing Electronic and Information Technology Accessibility Standards under Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 requires U.S. Federal Government agencies to make their electronic and information technology (EIT) accessible to people with disabilities. As of January 18, 2018, federal agencies are required to conform to the new standard.
So, what does this mean for you?
Join Greg Evans, VP of Sales & Account Services at Simpleview, and Tyler D'Amore, Director of Strategic Partnerships at AudioEye, on October 18 to learn more about digital accessibility and what DMOs need to know about it.
We'll discuss the recent changes to legislation and why websites are increasingly considered places of public accommodation in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. We'll also tackle accessibility standards on the web, and what you need to know about regulations and guidelines that apply to them.
What You'll Learn:
- What ADA compliance is and why it matters
- What true accessibility means for websites
- What responsibility DMOs have in 2018 and beyond
- How to achieve accessibility with technology
- How AudioEye works with Simpleview to provide DMOs with a fully compliant website
Even if you can't attend this webinar, we strongly suggest you sign-up anyway, so we can send you a follow up email with the recording as soon as it's available.
