Each year, I do a few presentations that give an introduction to web accessibility. I've done this a few times at Accessing Higher Ground, which I've been presenting at each year for the past 20 years. If you're new to web accessibility and couldn't make to Accessing Higher Ground this year, watch my dry run. It describes the relevant U.S. laws for web accessibility, why the ADA is interpreted differently in different regions of the country, and the many of the common questions and defenses that come up in litigation. I also included Winn-Dixie and some of the latest web accessibility decisions.
I recorded this video on Tuesday (the day before the actual presentation) to get comfortable with the contents and check my cadence. So it's not exactly what I said at Accessing Higher Ground but I'd say it's about 98% accurate. Also, here's a copy of the handout of citations and URLs for each of the slides.
