Removing Barriers to Accessibility on Federal Government Websites

EDT
Thursday, July 15, 2021 - 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM
Virtual Webinar

Many organizations fail to prioritize or even consider accessibility when designing their websites, which creates unnecessary obstacles for the over 40 million Americans who have a disability. Though legislation requires federal government websites to follow accessibility standards, many are not, making it more difficult for individuals to access government services.

ITIF hosted an expert panel discussion on federal government web accessibility and policy proposals for agencies to improve their compliance.
