Submit A Comment | View Comments

Accessible websites will be the subject of the next webinar in the Board’s free monthly series to be held on July 11 from 2:30 – 4:00 (ET). This session will review requirements in the internationally recognized Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, also known as WCAG 2.0, issued by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). The Board, which is updating its Section 508 standards for information and communication technology, has proposed referencing the WCAG 2.0 to address web accessibility.

The following webinar, which is scheduled for August 1, will review requirements in the ADA and ABA Standards for transportation facilities, including rail stations and bus shelters.

The webinar series is made available in cooperation with the ADA National Network. For more information, including registration instructions, visit www.accessibilityonline.org. Questions for the webinars can be submitted in advance through this website. Archived copies of previous Board webinars are also available on the site. Webinar attendees can earn continuing education credits (CEUs).
