Do you have non-accessible PDF documents scattered through your website? Can you only use your keyboard to get around your website? Do your link colors have enough contrast against backgrounds and surrounding text? Atlanta Legal Aid and Legal Services Vermont have been asking these questions and many more. They've worked with an accessibility consultant to create a manual that will help other legal aid organizations assess their websites and improve accessibility. Learn about the process they used to make their statewide websites accessible, including the top issues and solutions. Learn about setting a goal for accessibility, using tools and user testing to assess your website, and a checklist of common issues and step-by-step solutions — with a focus on Drupal and Pro Bono Net websites.
