Below are a few suggestions:

  • Evaluate the financial aspect to determine options for providing those services and indicate if they can even be provided. If it is determined that the participant costs would be so high as to prevent others from participating and the decision is to not provide the accommodation.

  • Assist the individual to enroll in ESL classes
  • Certified pre-apprenticeship programs may also be an appropriate option as supportive services are provided in addition to apprenticeship-related coursework and hands-on training.
  • For additional guidance, contact the Apprenticeship Standards Bureau, ASB, at 608-733-3930.

DWD's IT staff recommends the following:

  • DWD IT's staff did not get an error for the accessibility plug-in but did see a problem with the reCAPTCHA being used.
  • There are alternatives to WAVE (i.e., Google accessibility test tools), but are not free or as easy to use.
  • It appears to be a technical issue, and DWD IT staff cannot help since they don't know the background information, which plug-in, what the problem is, etc. Local WDBs may find additional help on this site:
  • If there are concerns about the accessibility of the site, contact the people that built the site because even if DWD-IT saw the problem, they couldn't do any testing to troubleshoot the problem as they don't have access to the site.

The corrective action applies to all entities that meet the definition of subrecipient. A subrecipient is an entity, usually but not limited to non-Federal entities, that receives a subaward from a pass-through entity to carry out part of a Federal award; but does not include an individual that is a beneficiary of such award. A subrecipient may also be a recipient of other Federal awards directly from a Federal awarding agency.

ADA Priorities 4.17, 4.18, and 4.19 do not require adding directional signs to public telephones. These ADA regulations are about signs and directional signs for TTYs:

The international symbol of TTY is required to identify phones with a TTY. Directional signs indicating the location of the nearest TTY must be provided where there are public phones without TTYs. Where directional signs for public telephones are provided, directional signs must also be provided to public TTYs.
