The following information is forwarded to you by the Great Lakes ADA Center (www.adagreatlakes.org) for your information:
Social media is everywhere and the accessibility of this important avenue for communication has been a long standing issue in the disability community. Review the information below and decide whether or not you want to join the effort to address these issues by sharing your recommendations and potential solutions to the inaccessibility issues that social media presents. This effort is sponsored by the National Council on Disability (NCD) and the Office on Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) within the U.S. Department of Labor.
The NCD-ODEP Social Media Accessibility Online Dialogue is now live. Be one of the first to participate!
Please post creative solutions you've used to make social media more accessible and your recommendations to social media companies on how they can create more accessible features and services. Simply login and submit your ideas and comments and vote on other ideas. Remember, these ideas will be used in an effort to help improve social media access for all.
Please visit http://ncd-odep.socialmedia.epolicyworks.org/ today.
Looking forward to your contributions!
The NCD-ODEP Online Dialogue Team
ePolicyWorks is part of the U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Disability Employment Policy ePolicyWorks effort. Through this effort, multiple federal agencies work together to ensure that Americans with disabilities have equal access to employment and critical employment-related supports such as health care, education, transportation, housing and technology. ePolicyWorks leverages Web-based technology, stakeholder involvement and real-time information-sharing to facilitate a new approach to federal policy making.
