State Information Technology Accessibility Initiatives

The purpose of the Web Cast is to provide information from selected state stakeholders on current experiences with electronic and information technology (EIT) accessibility challenges related to Web Sites, Application Development, Procurement, and Places of Public Access. ITTATC will also share some of the findings from its state needs assessment on IT accessibility "needs" and "barriers" as identified by State Assistive Technology Projects and State Offices of the Chief Information Officer.

The targeted audience includes state-level:

  • Policymakers
  • Assistive Technology Projects (AT Projects)
  • Offices of the Chief Information Officer (CIOs)
  • Procurement Officials (POs)
  • Persons with Disabilities

Panelists will address:

  • State specific examples of IT accessibility policy development and compliance and verification strategies.
  • Effective strategies to overcome barriers to IT accessibility.
  • Challenges of procurement of accessible IT products and services.
  • State approaches to training state level CIO and Procurement staff on IT accessibility.
