Subject: [blindlaw] Website accessibility



Our office has been contacted by someone with a very general question about website accessibility. This individual is seeking guidance on how to make websites more accessible. She works for a firm and her clients are generally healthcare providers who bill Medicare/Medicaid.  


Can anyone advise if there are any good resources/organizations that can provide general guidance on this matter? If this involved state or federal government agencies, I would have a better idea how to respond, but in the private sector I am pretty ignorant. I am aware that there has been ADA-based litigation re the need for merchants of various types to make their websites accessible. However the question here is what resources may exist to help earnest actors ensure that they are compliant in the first place.


Any leads are appreciated. Thanks.
