As a nonprofit learning organization dedicated to keeping attorneys and other professionals at the forefront of knowledge and expertise, Practising Law Institute (PLI) strives to make PLI.edu and its products and services as accessible as possible to everyone regardless of ability.
PLI is committed to promoting accessibility and inclusion and to making this website accessible to individuals with disabilities. PLI has partnered with UsableNet Inc ("UsableNet"), a leading web accessibility consultant, by implementing its technology that will enable and maintain Website accessibility in-line with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) Level AA, which also brings the Website into conformance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.
The initial accessibility work has been completed (where testing has been performed both with automatic accessibility testing tools and users of screen readers to identify issues) and remediation has been applied. UsableNet will continue to monitor the Website and make accessibility updates when needed. Users can "Enable Accessibility" via the first keyboard focused input or select the highly visible "Enable Accessibility" icon in order to benefit from always getting the accessibility enabled enhancements, ensuring equal access, to all features and functions.
Additionally, PLI’s goal is to make programs and course materials available to persons with a range of disabilities. In the area of captioning, PLI currently provides the following resources for programs and course materials:
- On your computer, open Chrome .
- At the top right, click More > Settings.
- At the bottom of the Settings page, click Advanced > Accessibility > Captions.
- Turn on Live Caption.
PLI can also provide live captioning services upon request for any live program at no extra charge. Captioning requests must be received at least 48 hours in advance of the live program for which captioning is desired. Captioning requests may be made by email to email@example.com. Our captions are prepared by live, professional captioners. PLI does not use machine translation.
· On-Demand Programs. Each recorded program is closed-captioned no more than two weeks after the live presentation. Where possible, PLI will release captioned programs in less than two weeks. Captioning accuracy is important to PLI, and we have found that accuracy and other aspects of preparing captioned programs (e.g., inserting time codes) take some time to do correctly. After launching an on-demand program, please make sure to click the "CC" icon on the bottom right-hand corner of the video screen.
Transcripts. For the majority of program offerings, PLI creates transcripts at the same time we create captions for recorded programs. Within each PLI transcript, a user can click a sentence and the user will be taken to the point in the program where those exact words were spoken.
PLI is constantly seeking to improve and enhance the accessibility of its website and programming. If you have any feedback or suggestions as to how we could improve the accessibility of this website or our products and services, if you have questions about “closed captioning” or if you experience any difficulty in accessing our site, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will work with you to provide you full access to the information, products and services available to the public on our site.
