Session 4: 12:10 PM PDT/3:10 PM EDT
Topic: Procuring accessible ICT and what to do when “everything is an exception”

Campuses around the country have worked to establish procedures for the procurement and implementation of accessible ICT. However, once accessibility review processes are in place, it quickly becomes evident that most products on the market are not fully accessible. This presentation will discuss this reality and how it can be addressed.
