ADA Website Compliance Workshop
The federal Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is often associated with physical locations and accommodations certain businesses must make for people with disabilities. These accommodations typically include wheelchair accessibility, access to service animals and the use of Braille for customers who are visually impaired. However, the ADA also extends to the digital realm, requiring businesses to ensure web content is accessible to all users.
The Cayuga County Office of Tourism is partnering with the Cayuga Economic Development Agency (CEDA) to bring you a training seminar that will cover what is a compliant website, and best practices to bring your website up to code. The workshop is taking place at Cayuga Community College, 197 Franklin Street, Auburn on Thursday, October 24th, from 9:30AM - 11:30AM, for a fee of $15.
This workshop will be led by Teresa Angelo, Vice President at InHouse Design, a full service graphic design firm, headquartered in Geneva, NY.
“Compliancy is thoughtful consideration to legibility, build structure, interactivity, content and content management. Combining compliancy initiatives with aesthetic and the unique personality of our client’s online presence is our goal. Although avoiding lawsuits is important, compliancy brings added value to the website owner and all site visitors, both benefiting from better usability and improved SEO,” says Teresa Angelo.
To register for the workshop email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, phone number, business/organization. Send your check in the amount of $15 made payable to the Cayuga County Convention and Visitors Bureau to 25 South Street, Auburn, NY, 13021. Registrations must be received by October 22, 2019.
