This webinar provides a practical approach to making online course materials accessible. We’ll look at accessibility checkers, explaining their limitations; we’ll discuss accessibility options for print and visual materials, as well as use of video captioning and simultaneous captioning. The emphasis is on practical advice to guide participants on what are the easiest accessibility tasks to accomplish, the use of templates and automated processes to reduce the time involved in ensuring our materials are accessible and suggesting useful resources for further exploration.
