Sections 255 and 508 are the federal regulations that require accessible
information and communication technologies (ICT). They are currently being
revised, and the time is ripe for public comment before they are finalized.
This webinar will go over the current environment, changes to the technical
provisions, and how we all can participate in the process to make sure that
the final regulations will provide the access needed by users to both
current and emerging ICT.

Besides outlining the proposed rules, the panel will explore ideas to make
the government and others adopt a new commitment to following these rules.

This is a timely topic, and you should register in advance to reserve a
spot in the online Webinar room. Late registrations may not receive login
