Web Accessibility Toolkit for Legal Services Websites
Legal Services Vermont (LSV) and Atlanta Legal Aid Society (ALAS) developed a web accessibility toolkit as part of their TIG-funded projects to enhance their statewide legal help websites. The organizations partnered with a consultant, David Berman Communications, to explore and implement best practices for making their website accessible to people with disabilities.
This toolkit covers:
- why organizations should make their legal help websites accessible and what goals they should set
- tips for assessing websites, including doing your own website user testing and using free online tools
- common accessibility issues on legal aid websites and suggested solutions
- how-to details for Drupal and LawHelp websites -- the platforms used by Vermont and Atlanta, respectively
