WordPress Accessibility Day 2023

How to Address Accessibility and Privacy to Help Avoid Fines and Lawsuits

We as website owners have an opportunity to not only respect the privacy rights of our website visitors, but to also ensure our websites can properly be accessed by all individuals, regardless of any disabilities. Not only does this help website owners comply with laws (and avoid non-compliance fines or lawsuits), but it also helps demonstrate professionalism and maximizes exposure to as broad of an audience as possible.

In this presentation, Donata Skillrud (attorney) and Hans Skillrud (former agency owner) will discuss the crossroads between privacy and accessibility, what to keep in mind when addressing both sets of regulations, and the actionable steps you can take as a website owner (or agency) to ensure you deploy websites that are both accessible as well as privacy compliant.
