Most studies find that about one-fifth of the population has some kind of disability that can include visual, hearing, motor and cognitive disabilities. While not all of these disabilities effect users of websites, for most businesses it would be unwise to purposely exclude 20, 10, or even 5 percent of their potential customers from their web sites. For schools, universities, and government entities, it in many cases also violates the law.
Join us to learn more about these disabilities, what it is like to surf the web with a disability, and what we as good citizens of the web can do to help.
