Federal agencies are required to provide accessible information and communication technology (ICT) developed, maintained, used, and procured for people with disabilities under Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act. Many agencies develop training and testing programs to ensure that their employees know how to create, procure, use, and maintain accessible ICT. This session is intended for federal employees who are responsible for those training and testing programs. Presenters will discuss ways to establish and improve upon the foundation of such training and testing programs, including reviews of key elements for accessibility, important features for ICT testing, best methods for ensuring conformance, and effective resources and tools for evaluating website accessibility and resolving access issues. Questions can be submitted in advance of the session or can be posed during the live webinar. This webinar will include video remote interpreting (VRI) and real-time captioning.
This session is accepting questions from registered users. After you have registered to participate in this session you can submit your questions on your Account Manager page. Please note: the number of questions will be limited and submissions will be closed well before the session starts to provide time to prepare answers.
