Feedback form is now closed.
The Legal Services Corporation’s Statewide Website Assessment Project had a lot to say about the accessibility of our websites. There are many reasons why the legal services community should care about whether their websites are inclusive. It is easy to become overwhelmed by accessibility standards and conclude that you can’t improve your website’s accessibility without an expert. However, there are free tools that can address your concerns! This session will help attendees learn how to use free tools to help assess basic accessibility errors; improve readability; find accessible color palettes; create accessible images, infographics, and videos; and learn how to find coding tutorials to make custom features on your site.
