Use this checklist to make sure your virtual meetings and presentations are accessible.
In response to the rapid demand for telework, PEAT is partnering with the Global Initiative for Inclusive ICTs (G3ict) and the International Association of Accessibility Professionals (IAAP) to offer a series of free webinars as resources to support remote working accessible environments.
For some, conducting business from home may be a new adventure, while others are veterans of remote work. Regardless of experience, it can be helpful for us all to think through approaches to teleworking to ensure that we are both effective and content when working from our home offices.
With telework comes the importance of ensuring that your meeting platforms support full accessibility for people with disabilities. Luckily, the process for selecting an accessible meeting platform matches the process for choosing any other technology.
With the rapid rise of telework, the PEAT team recognizes it’s more important than ever to make sure virtual presentations are accessible. These efforts allow all participants, particularly people with disabilities, to effectively engage with presented content.
