End Date: 6/15/2017End Time: 2:00 PM
Event Description
Regulations often struggle to keep up with the ever-changing nature of modern technology. Unfortunately, this means many individuals with disabilities are often left with unequal access.

On January 18, 2017, the U.S. Access Board released a comprehensive refresh of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act and Section 255 of the Communication Act. This much anticipated refresh incorporates international standards for web accessibility and updates the technical requirements published in 1998 and 2000 respectively.

In this webinar, Bruce Bailey and Timothy Creagan from the U.S. Access Board will review the final revision of Section 508 and Section 255. They will provide a comprehensive analysis of the changes and disclose how they will affect diverse organizations nationwide. Register for this free webinar to learn about:
