ClearGov and Digital Authority Partners recently presented Accessibility Matters: Making Your Municipal Website ADA-Friendly, a webinar to address the latest web accessibility standards and provide practical advice for municipal governments to achieve ADA website optimization.
“The concept of making complex information accessible and easy to understand is really core to ClearGov‘s mission,” its CEO, Chris Bullock, says in a media release. Our unique, infographic-based transparency profiles are designed to communicate dense fiscal data in a way that makes sense to everyone — and that includes citizens who rely on assistive technology to access the Internet.”

Digital Authority Partners (DAP) conducted a study of ADA website compliance across nearly 100 US government websites and found that nearly 44% of government websites do a poor job of meeting basic ADA compliance requirements, the release suggests.

“We believe that all constituents have a right to access, read, and interact on government websites regardless of any disability,” DAP President Michael Reddy states. “We are proud that ClearGov, a leading government technology company, that offers transparency files for over 40,000 agencies engaged us to help them make their website ADA-friendly.”
