AccessibleSTL Roundtable Summer Series
Session #2: Digital Accessibility Basics
Time: 12:00 – 1:30 pm CST
Date: Wednesday, July 29, 2020
Place: The comfort of your own home or office
We hope you’ll join us for the second session of our summer roundtable series! Mary will begin this session with a brief overview of options for accessible platforms before jumping into best practices for accessible virtual presentations and meetings. During the session, attendees will consider digital and social media communications through the lens of accessibility and equal access; digital accommodations such as alternative text and closed captioning will be discussed. Attendees will leave with resources they can utilize to review and optimize their organizations’ digital accessibility for employees with disabilities.
This summer series is a remote alternative to our usual AccessibleSTL Roundtable luncheon events traditionally hosted at Paraquad. While we normally charge for AccessibleSTL trainings, we are offering this series free as a public service to the community. We understand the economic crisis COVID -19 has created, and we are resolved to empower employees with disabilities and their employers to continue working effectively through this storm.
