Inclusive Voices: Website Accessibility in 2016
As Sunrise kicks off a fresh new year, we are working on significant upgrades to our website and advocacy tools for 2016! The countdown is on to our re-launch in the first quarter of this year. It will feature many helpful tools for self-advocates, allies, supporters and the general public. As always, accessibility is a critical component of our upgrades. It is important to know the accessibility laws, regulations, rules, and grant requirements that may apply to any website that is developed. For instance, the Americans with Disabilities Act prohibits discrimination and requires reasonable accommodations by local and state entities, including in their websites. How does your online communication effort rate on the accessibility scale? Guest blogger, Talley Wells shares his experience.
