Greetings all and thanks very much for joining. Thanks especially for your interest in accessibility and universal design. Today’s topic is Universal Access and has to do with ensuring equal access by citizens with disabilities, those in low bandwidth situations, and those who may use older technologies or assistive devices to access federal web sites and applications.
I am joined by Jared Smith and Jim Thatcher and our goal is to bring your attention to the ideas that have been posted around this topic and to encourage you to vote, to comment and to post new ideas.
The first comment below contains a summary of accessibility topics I found. While there are just 14 comments that have been categorized as Accessibility, many others have implications for Universal Access and I have tried to compile them. Welcome and let’s get started!
