The Clerk’s Office for the Middle District of North Carolina has created several new web accessible civil and criminal events in CM/ECF, which are listed under the Web Accessible heading. The events were created to comply with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act and are intended to help a blind user with assistive technology, such as screen reader software, to independently file documents. The events are not as functional as other non-web accessible events due to programming limitations beyond the Court’s control. The Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts plans on upgrading CM/ECF in the future to be fully compliant with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act.
If you experience any difficulties with the new events or have any questions, please contact the Clerk’s Office at 336-332-6000.
