Cryptzone to present at the National ADA Symposium

The 2016 National ADA Symposium, an annual conference focused on the Americans with Disabilities Act, is scheduled for next week (June 19-22) in Denver, Colorado. Cryptzone is slated to present a session with the Department of Education Office for Civil Rights Education and Digital Access.

With speakers Mary Lou Mobley, Denver Regional Dept. of Education Office for Civil Rights and Ken Nakata, Accessibility Consulting Practice, Cryptzone, this session will explore key aspects of website accessibility, distance learning, and e-readers as a civil rights matter, especially in the context of educational institutions (school districts, universities, etc.).

This session on Wednesday, June 22, during Session 7 from 8:30-10:30 will address the application of the ADA and Section 504 to an interconnected world; technological challenges faced by covered entities; and recent litigation, regulatory, and enforcement developments.  Mobley and Nakata will walk participants through how OCR and other federal agencies approach their responsibility to enforce the ADA and Section 504 in a digital context. As experts in accessibility, Mobley and Nakata are well versed in these topics and will offer many practical tips for achieving compliance or challenging non-compliance.
