There are many things you can do to make sure that all your online sessions are as accessible as possible.
So what would YOU do if ……..
- You had a profoundly deaf delegate in your session?
- You had a moderately visually impaired delegate in your session?
- You had a blind delegate in your session?
- You had someone who is severely dyslexic in your session?
Here are some considerations:
- Check the accessibility features available in your web conferencing platform.
- Do you have a standard accessibility question in your booking form?
- Provide another opportunity for participants to let you know about their accessibility requirements in the joining instructions.
- Encourage participants to let you know their needs by other appropriate means.
- Adapt your session and resources before the day according to the needs of your participants.
- Be sure that all participants have the necessary resources at least twenty four hours ahead of time, so they are able to prepare.
- Make sure your adaptations don't exclude other participants!
