Monthly Topic:  Accessibility Testing presented by Trissential


How do organizations build a digital landscape inclusive of all users so they don’t fall victim to escalating Accessibility litigation (up over 200% since 2018)? And how do organizations develop a robust accessibility testing strategy in order to achieve compliance to both Section 508 and WCAG standards?   

In October of 2019, the Supreme Court set a legal precedent on web accessibility liability when it refused to hear Domino’s defense in a lawsuit brought forward by a blind man (Robles vs. Domino’s). When the federal government rolled WCAG 2.0 into Section 508 in 2017, many organizations (just like Domino's) assumed being compliant with Section 508 meant that they were also compliant for WCAG 2.0. Unfortunately, that was not the case.  There were a number of differences between WCAG 2.0 and Section 508 even before WCAG 2.1 was added in 2018. 

In this presentation, Robert Gormley will debunk accessibility and inclusive design myths and walk participants through how to establish the most comprehensive web accessibility testing strategy. He will cover the people, processes, and tools fundamental to delivering the most inclusive digital platform through quality assurance.
