A September 2020 lawsuit filed against ADP TotalSource on behalf of San Francisco’s LightHouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired has made it clear that accessibility overlay solutions fail to protect website and business owners from litigation. More importantly, they fail to serve people with disabilities. With an additional 250 lawsuits being filed in 2020 against organizations using widgets and overlays, it is clear that any organization that is subject to ADA WCAG compliance standards must re-evaluate their strategies for enabling accessibility.
When you consider PeopleSoft, especially Campus Solutions, and that over 20% of students require assistive technology, many institutions are struggling to provide technological parity. And leaving themselves open to significant liability.
Join PeopleTools expert Scott Hirni as he discusses how the largest colleges & universities in the world are rapidly enabling their PeopleSoft accessibility roadmap. This session will demonstrate how to enable:
– Speech recognition for mobility challenges utilizing Dragon
– Voice over and JAWS for blindness
– Color contrast and other techniques for visual impairments
…and all without requiring additional technical resources or additional PeopleTools knowledge.
