Are you doing everything you can to make your company’s solutions accessible and easy to use for 60 million Americans with disabilities?
If you answered “No,” then now is the time to win over these potential customers. Now is the time for you to show the world that your company strives to keep everyone connected regardless of one’s personal limitations: connected at a time when nearly all forms of in-person communication pose unprecedentedly high public health risks.
Join Suzy Rosen Singleton, the Chief of the Disability Rights Office of the Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau at the Federal Communications Commission; Michal Nowicki, a legally blind, practicing Telecom Attorney at Marashlian & Donahue, PLLC, The CommLaw Group; and Darrin Caddes, Vice President of Corporate Design at Poly Inc. for a very special free webinar event sponsored by the Cloud Communications Alliance, where this distinguished and knowledgeable panel will:
- Provide firsthand insights into how persons with disabilities interact with a variety of modern-day technologies and solutions to highlight the benefits of advanced accessibility, while identifying persistent deficiencies
- Educate our audience about the laws and regulations governing disability access and how they impact various communications, Internet-based and other information technology solutions providers
- And, notably, shine a light on the opportunities and other commercial benefits that arise when technology businesses, particularly communications vendors, focus on not just ensuring compliance with applicable legal duties, but making “disability access” a priority
