I came across this article at work as I work in communications for a school for the Deaf.

The ADA laws were recently updated to ensure the digital presence of state and local governments complies with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) Level AA. Since K-12 schools and higher education institutions receive government funding, they must ensure their websites and apps meet WCAG standards. This is a significant step forward, ensuring that the disability community can access online resources!

    Great news Drew thanks for sharing! Hopefully, this law can trickle down into other industries.
