The spirit of open source is to democratize the web for everyone, but, according to the World Wide Web Consortium, one in five people in the United States have a disability. Multiply that globally, and you have a large community of people that may not be able to see your content and/or do business with you if your site is not built with accessibility in mind.
In this informative webinar, hear from the experts at digital agency Americaneagle.com, who will walk you through what it takes to make your site ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) compliant, including what to consider, how to tackle and plugins/resources to help you get there.
