"Accessibility Planning" by Mike O'Hare from RatioDesign

Overview: Accessibility Planning

New legislation (and legal action), competition in government and education markets, and a growing elderly and disabled population are among the reasons many companies are beginning to view accessibility as a strategy. Developing an accessible technology plan may be one of the best decisions your organization can make this year.

The May 17th discussion, led by Mike O'Hare, will focus on the business and technical issues organizations face when assessing the need for accessibility.

    Great presentation by Mike and it generated a great amount of discussion. The topic was so popular we may have to do a part 2 in the future.
