About the Workshop:
Please join the All Access and Global Employee Resource Groups as we host a workshop about the viability and availability of access tools across the spectrum and how they benefit many, not just the target group.
Closed captions, for example, benefit the deaf and hard-of-hearing and also benefit English as an Additional Language Learners and folks who learn differently.
Accessible websites not only benefit people with disabilities but also assist in Search Engine Optimization, site security and mobile responsive design.
We will present additional cross-cutting tools for the first half hour, then open it up for discussion and questions.
Part of this will inform future priorities for the Digital Accessibility Committee of the All Access ERG as we look at ways that others can benefit from accessibility improvements.
