ABA improves accessibility to webinars and on-demand programs

The American Bar Association CLE programming is now accessible to individuals who are deaf and hard of hearing. All live webinars and on-demand programs produced after Jan. 1 now include Communication Access Realtime Translation (CART) services, commonly known as real-time captioning or closed captioning.

“Providing CART and captioning will allow lawyers and law students who are deaf or hard of hearing to equally and fully participate in the ABA’s webinars and on-demand programs,” said ABA President Judy Perry Martinez. “The ABA values its members with disabilities and works to ensure that its products are accessible and inclusive to all individuals.”

In addition, approximately 135 ABA CLE programs produced before this year now have transcripts available, and of those about 100 programs produced within the last two years will have closed captioning added to them.
