Webinar Series: Section 508 Best Practices
from the Great Lakes ADA Center

Description:

The 21st Century Integrated Digital Experience Act (IDEA) aims to improve the digital experience for government customers and reinforce existing requirements for federal public websites. It requires that agencies update their websites using the U.S. Web Design System (USWDS). The USWDS helps the federal government design and build better online experiences for the American public. This webinar will review the USWDS and explain how it may be used to meet the requirements of the 21st Century IDEA in creating accessible agency websites.

Our presenters, Dan Williams, U.S. Web Design System, Technology Transformation Services (TTS) at the General Services Administration (GSA), and Ammie Farraj Feijoo, 21st Century IDEA Implementation Lead, Technology Transformation Services (TTS), U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) will describe the USWDS and how it may be used to make websites accessible. They will highlight common issues. They will also offer recommendations and best practices and identify available resources for making sure that the provisions of IDEA are met.
