Access this webcast for a look at the issues you’ll encounter with accessibility and ways you can ensure your AV technology complies with the Americans With Disabilities Act.
When technology solutions don’t follow compliance dictates, they have the potential to create more barriers. For example: a lectern where the AV controls are not accessible to people in wheelchairs or a display that sticks out too far from the wall and becomes a hazard for those with sight disabilities.
In this AVI-SPL webinar, Legrand | AV’s Kathryn Gaskell and Karen Smidt discuss a few sections of the ADA (American With Disabilities Act) most relevant to AV, including:
- Reach Ranges (section 308)
- Operable Parts (sections 205 and 209)
- Protruding Objects (sections 204 and 307)
You’ll gain an understanding of the AV challenges inherent in each section, and learn solutions for creating a more inclusive environment.
