ADA Guidelines 2010: Communication Elements and Features (RV-10339A)
The Americans with Disabilities Act/Architectural Barriers Act Accessibility Guidelines (2010 Guidelines) developed by the U.S. Architectural and Transportation Barriers Compliance Board (the Access Board) effectively replaces the 1991 ADA Accessibility Guidelines (ADAAG) and the Uniform Federal Accessibility Standards (UFAS).
Chapter 7: Communication Elements and Features of the 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design focuses on ADA requirements for accessible modes of communication. In this course, you will learn about the requirements of Title II of the ADA for effective communication. Effective communication means that whatever is written or spoken must be as clear and understandable to people with disabilities as it is for people who do not have disabilities.
