Join CMCA, Granicus, and Meeting The Challenge, Inc. on June 26th at 2 p.m. MT for a virtual training session on everything you need to know regarding your online information and the Americans with Disability Act.
As you may know, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a civil rights law intended to eliminate discrimination of people with disabilities to access public programs and facilities, private businesses’ good and services, employment information, and online communications. While the ADA does not specifically address digital accessibility – websites and information readily available and communicated through electronic documents – the broader meaning of the law requires access to and interaction with entities covered by the ADA, whether that access is physical or virtual.
Attendees will learn and understand:
- The requirements and prohibitions of the Title II of the ADA
- How to self-evaluate and identify both physical and operational barriers that might prevent access to public programs
- The aids and services needed to provide equally effective communication for people with disabilities
- How the above are related to the requirement to have websites that provide accessible platforms for:
- Program registration and interactive content
- Employment applications
- Public meetings that are live-streamed or archived
- Accessible content for people with a range of disabilities including blindness, low-vision, deafness, and limited manual mobility
