What is Section 508? In short, it requires that all federal agency websites be accessible to those with disabilities. Just as brick and mortar businesses want their shops to be physically accessible to all, your web content should have the assets that enable all visitors to navigate freely. The benefits of 508-compliant website affect not only those with disabilities, but the user experience of all visitors. Accessible web content can lead to:

  • An expanded customer base
  • Reductions in expenses
  • Innovations through inclusion
  • Limited legal exposure
  • A competitive edge

Join Mark Gross, President, DCL, and Stephani Clark, Customer Success Manager, easyDITA, in this webinar that will discuss how making your content more accessible can benefit your organization.
