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
