About the Presenters
As a state or local government, providing your constituents with the services they need to be successful is crucial – and often difficult. The last few years coping with the pandemic has certainly not made things any easier.
The pandemic also helped bring into focus that many government services are not actually accessible to individuals with disabilities. According to State Tech, as municipalities increasingly adopted remote work, virtual meetings, and online service delivery, the limitations of these solutions and technologies for individuals with disabilities were revealed.
Add to that the fact that state and local governments are required to comply with accessibility laws, such as the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), plus a rise in governmental legislation around digital accessibility, there is an even greater need for accessible technology solutions.
Join us for an on-demand webcast addressing challenges with and solutions for improving accessibility in government services. We explore how Microsoft and consulting partners like HSO and iSoftStone are helping municipalities to build accessible technology solutions, with a particular focus on the Microsoft Power Platform.
