Lawline makes accessibility updates to online CLE catalog

"We believe online education should be accessible to everyone, so we’re proud to make updates that improve the user experience and accessibility for all users"

Lawline is proud to announce new features to expand the accessibility of its award-winning online CLE programs. Since 2020, all new Lawline programs have included closed captioning, while transcripts were provided for older courses. Now, updates make it easier to find programs with closed captioning, to request captions for older courses, and allow users to follow along with closed captioned courses via an interactive live transcript.

Lawline’s innovative site, app, credit tracker, and additional technology make CLE easy and intuitive for attorneys. With the accessibility updates, the online learning experience is easier than ever for all users, regardless of ability or circumstance. The following key changes have been made to the site: 1) attorneys with hearing impairments can sort the catalog to see which courses currently feature closed captions; 2) there is an easy-to-find feature on the site to request that closed captions be added to any course that does not already have them; 3) courses featuring closed captions also have a live transcript that follows in paragraph format, allowing the viewer to click on a portion of text and instantly rewind the video back to a particular moment in the program.

“We believe online education should be accessible to everyone, so we’re proud to make updates that improve the user experience and accessibility for all users,” said Richard Hernandez, Lawline’s Chief Operating Officer.

In addition to meeting the needs of all attorneys with hearing impairments, Lawline now also provides accessible options for those who have visual impairments (which include a screen-reader option for JAWS, NVDA, VoiceOver and TalkBack); motor impairments and cognitive disabilities (assistive features for attorneys with autism, ADHD, dyslexia, CVA among others); and epilepsy (modified site to eliminate risk of seizures that result from flashing or blinking animations and risky color combinations).

Lawline’s comprehensive accessibility statement outlines their commitment to accessibility for all people, and details the many options available to those with visual impairment, hearing impairment, motor impairment, aural impairment, cognitive disabilities, and more. With more attorneys completing their CLE online than ever before, Lawline is dedicated to giving every attorney the best online learning experience possible.
