9/20 Thursday 11:00 a.m.

Accessible Technology series webinar covers ONLINE VIDEO ACCESSIBILITY. For video to be fully accessible, its audio content must be accessible to people who are unable to hear, its visual content must be accessible to people who are unable to see, and both audio and visual content must be accessible to people who are deaf/blind. The video must also be provided in a media player that is fully accessible to people using keyboard alone or assistive technologies. This webinar will explore each of these issues and their solutions in depth, including tools, services, and strategies for addressing video accessibility needs throughout large organizations, with a particularly focus on video accessibility in higher education. The Accessible Technology Webinar series is hosted and coordinated by the Great Lakes ADA Center and the Pacific ADA Center. Continuing education recognition credits are available.
