Overview: This webinar is a high-level overview of global IT accessibility laws and policies. The presentation will start with an analysis of U.S. laws and policies with a goal of creating a general conceptual framework for understanding how different laws and policies fit together. It will then extend this framework more broadly to include examples from other nations. This approach will help audience members understand how to examine any country’s IT laws and policies, harmonize elements that might otherwise seem inconsistent, and identify where gaps still exist.
