The Future is Accessible: A Legal Perspective


Wednesday, March 17, 2021
2:00 PM - 3:30 PM Eastern Time Zone

Description

The Covid-19 pandemic and conditions of the past year increased our reliance on digital communication and entertainment applications like Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Netflix, Amazon, HBO Max and much more. Whether we use them for work, communication, or entertainment, these useful applications each pose their own unique benefits and challenges when it comes to accessibility. This program will review disability elements and related legal requirements of some of the more popular applications. Discussions will also touch on the emergence of telehealth as well as a brief look at the advancements in access and current deficiencies of “gaming”.
