A 2021 WebAIM study revealed that 97% of the one million most-trafficked websites had accessibility issues. However, digital accessibility is not limited to website accessibility. It’s important that we ensure all aspects of technology are accessible to people with disabilities, including the everyday digital tools we use in our personal and professional lives.
In this webinar, participants will learn how you can make technology more accessible to people with disabilities and how you can support your employees better by providing accommodations driven by modern technology.
