Improving Public Health Materials Accessibility with State University

Initiative Description

TFL worked with the Georgia State University's School of Public Health to improve the accessibility of Public Health Materials. Individuals throughout Georgia benefitted from public health agencies learning more about ICT Accessibility, the importance of producing ASL videos, minimizing the text complexity, and producing braille. We also worked with GSU School of Public Health to ensure public health materials and websites met/exceeded 508 and WCAG 2.0/2.1 standards and works with Assistive technology. 

Lessons Learned/Replication

This partnership brought visability to the AT Act programs and our ICT expertise at the highest levels of government and across Georgia. We continued to see the positive impact and systemic changes that can occur when partnering with agencies who can quickly amplify the message of AT and accessibility. The initiative continues to grow and there are a lot of opportunities in this space for more involvement and leadership from AT Act programs.
