TecAccess and PPSV Announce Webinar: What do Changes in Accessibility Standards Mean for You in 2009?

ROCKVILLE, Va., April 16 /PRNewswire/ -- TecAccess (www.tecaccess.net), a leader in accessibility solutions, and the law firm of Powers Pyles Sutter & Verville PC (www.ppsv.com), will offer a highly anticipated webinar, entitled "What Do Changes in Accessibility Standards Mean For You in 2009?" on April 29th, at 2pm EDT.

"This exciting event will serve as a field guide to WCAG 2.0, Section 508 Refresh, Amendments to the Americans with Disabilities Act, and UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities," explained Debra Ruh, founder of TecAccess.

Leading this informative session will be Ms. Ruh, as well as John Kemp and Elisabeth Doyle, PPSV attorneys and founders of DATA (www.accessibilitytrends.com). By assembling this leading team of accessibility experts, the teleconference will effectively address:

  • Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 and a wide range of recommendations for making Web content more accessible
  • Efforts to update the 508 Standards and the Telecommunications Act Guidelines
  • The new ADA Amendments Act (ADAA)
  • The now-ratified UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities

The goal of the webinar is to ensure that all organizations are aware of -- and prepared for -- mounting changes in accessibility and disability guidelines and mandates that will soon impact human resources, IT, business development teams, and risk management departments. 2009 has already witnessed major accessibility changes that all businesses, educational institutions, and government agencies must now be prepared to address, with future changes anticipated.

"We understand the unique needs of both government agencies and the business community, and have designed this webinar to help protect organizations by reducing their risks, while at the same time maximizing their value and ROI based on crucial accessibility initiatives," explained Ruh.

With these recent -- and ongoing -- changes in standards it is time to update and rethink current accessibility initiatives, diversity plans, risk management strategies, and marketing campaigns.

Register Now! Or call: 804-503-9231

The cost of the webinar is $75.00. Registration required. Webinar fees for Digital Accessibility Trends Analysis (DATA) members will be waived.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
