Accessibility is at the heart of our work in legal aid technology. We want our websites, forms, and interactive tools to be accessible to users. But what does that mean? Accessibility is more than a set of website design standards - it is multifaceted and intersectional. This panel will explore accessibility at the intersections of design, language, interactivity, content, and cultural competency. Join this session to discuss the question of what it means to build an accessible website, content, or tool - and what we can all do to get there.
