Chamber Member Learning Lunch : Digital Accessibility
What is Digital Accessibility and why is it important for your business?
Making sure your website and other online assets are usable for all people, including those with disabilities of all kinds has become critical for the success of your business. More than 1 Billion people with disabilities are part of the global market and organizations that ignore those consumers limit their potential growth. That's a great incentive.
But the penalty for ignoring website accessibility is a growing issue that is now plaguing businesses of all sizes across the country - even here in Oklahoma City ... LAWSUITS.
Join us to hear from experts on website accessibility so you can know what you need to do to protect your business and serve more customers.
We'll get a briefing and have an opportunity for Q&A from the experts:
