Web Accessibility

See All Topics
The webinar is Language Access Strategies for Legal Aid Websites and will look at some of the topics surrounding removing language as a barrier to access online content. We will cover topics including maintaining multilingual content, where machine translation fits into the translation workflow, and how are people with limited English currently using online resources. We don’t have the solid takeaways like in the phishing webinar but there were a few interesting points we discussed.
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:
Technology is accessible when designed to understand the needs of individuals with impaired abilities, and developed to create universal compatibility between users and computer systems. Assistive Technology is often the merger between people seeking to operate software, and programmers, who are developing the services being offered to the public.

  LSNTAP talks you through how to ensure your organization's website is accessible and is utilizing current, up to date methods for use by people with fine motor control issues and for people who are hearing or vision impaired.
In this webinar, presenters Faith Laminack and Allison Carnwath discuss ways to make websites more accessible for individuals with disabilities. Typically when we think of accessibility we consider it within a physical space like ramps for wheelchairs or handicap parking spaces, for example. However, in the age of digital media, it is important that websites are made accessible as well. Laminack and Carnwath provide a variety of examples such as keyboard navigation, text visibility, and video cues for audio to help increase accessibilty.
