Accessibility and Communication
Are you aware that the federal government has requirements for how you communicate? If you use video, it needs to be both captioned and audibly described. Is your documentation on the web? It needs to be accessible. But what does it mean to be accessible? What are the laws governing accessibility, and how do they relate to your profession? In this presentation, Paul Paire from Temple University will cover:
- An overview of accessibility and the related laws
- Specific accessibility laws as they relate to the technical communication field
- Items to address when making documents (Microsoft Word and Adobe PDF) and videos accessible
FOOD, BEVERAGE, AND DESSERT ARE INCLUDED IN THE TICKET PRICE!
