It's simple: your website must be compliant with the latest accessibility laws as of January 18, 2018.
No more excuses. No more, “it only applies to federal agencies”. No more, “I’ll wait until the Department of Justice comes after me.” Just as you wouldn’t and couldn’t construct a new building for your agency without including wheelchair-accessible ramps and bathrooms, you must ensure your website is accessible.
If your agency’s website is part of your responsibility, people will look to you for answers, but don’t worry; Vision is here to help.
