Is Your Website a Potential Target for Accessibility Litigation?

Tribute Technology and UserWay are Co-Hosting a Webinar to Help Funeral Homes, Crematories, and Cemeteries Understand ADA Compliance Online

Middleton, WI — Premier deathcare industry provider Tribute Technology is partnering with accessibility innovator UserWay for a webinar focused on funeral home website accessibility.

Over 5,000 business owners across all sectors have already been served litigation for accessibility-related issues this year, including several funeral homes. On Wednesday, June 8, at 1 p.m. ET, Tribute Technology and UserWay will offer a free webinar open to all funeral professionals to ensure their websites meet the federal standards established by the Americans with Disabilities Act and similar standards in other countries.

Speakers will include UserWay COO Dr. Lionel Wolberger and Tribute Technology CMO Courtney Gould Miller. The webinar will address questions from attendees, explain best practices and tools funeral homes can use to address accessibility-related issues, and share insights on how to best protect their firm from potential litigation.

Accessibility is not just important for those with disabilities — having an optimized website can assist senior citizens who are impacted by vision-related impairments and users with learning disabilities. For example, dyslexia impacts up to 10 percent of the world’s population, and there are specific fonts available that are more legible and user-friendly.

Websites with higher-end accessibility functions can also generate enhanced search engine optimization results. A better user experience can lead to more website traffic due to improved site and page structure, the addition of video captions and alt text for images, and enhanced readability of all content.

Funeral home owners and staff members are encouraged to sign up for this important webinar at Those who are unable to attend live should still sign up, as the recording will be available at a later date.
