Digital Accessibility: Avoid the Pitfalls and Stay in Compliance

Compliance with the American with Disabilities Act (ADA), Sections 504 and 508 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Website Content Accessibility guidelines (WCAG 2.0) can be challenging. The needs and demands of faculty, staff and students can be overwhelming for institutions and workplaces, and digital accessibility requires strategic leadership and partnership throughout an organization. Recently, one of the largest areas of compliance concerns has been digital accessibility. In order to have a learning or working environment that is digitally accessible there must be an overall institutional commitment.
