Wednesday, February 19, 2014
11 AM Pacific, 2 PM Eastern

Access to individuals with disabilities, including those who are deaf or hard of hearing and people who are blind or have low vision must be provided. This applies whether you are participating in a webinar or presenting one. The Great Lakes ADA Center has worked together in providing a monthly webinar series and has developed some technical assistance to assist others in ensuring accessibility. This session will examine the use of interactive features, captioning, audio connections, and other features as it relates to those who are planning to provide webinars as well as those who are developing webinar platforms.

Session Objectives:
• Be able to identify at least 3 barriers that individuals with disabilities experience when accessing webinar platforms and content and how to address them.
• Be able to identify at least 3 features that impact accessibility in the design and delivery of webinar content
• Be able to identify features within a webinar platform that need to be considered when choosing among various options
• Identify at least 3 resources, and other tools for creating an Accessible Webinar
