    Experience the latest technologies for making math accessible to diverse learners. Math is its own language, and the ability to perceive and process the information in math content can be a barrier that prevents some learners from pursuing careers in math and related STEM fields. In this session, you will explore tools that provide multiple representations of math text, including text to speech supports and sonification.

    Learn how to make self-created K-12 and higher ed STEM curriculum materials - including documents, graphics, and videos - accessible to all learners. The four accessible design principles of POUR will be applied to STEM-related course content through a series of material makeover demonstrations. Common examples of materials created by K-12 and higher ed STEM faculty will be first displayed in traditional formats, followed by POUR-aligned accessible versions. Skills covered in this session will include best practices for writing alt text and descriptions for technical images, charts, and graphics; creating closed captions and audio descriptions for video; the application of MathML in documents and websites to make mathematical and scientific notation accessible; and tools for making coding and basic computer science concepts accessible for all learners.

    Crowded room of participants facing a screen and a presenter

    2:00PM – 3:00PM ET on Tuesday, August 21, 2018

    When you deliver a presentation at a conference or at a meeting, you want everyone in attendance to understand your message. However, many presenters unintentionally erect barriers that make that goal difficult for some attendees. In this webinar, you will learn about best practices for making your presentations accessible to a wider audience that includes not only people with disabilities, but also people who call into a presentation and do not have access to the visuals, and those sitting in the back row of a large room. You will learn techniques for making your slides more accessible using a number of popular presentation tools such as Microsoft PowerPoint, Apple’s Keynote and Google Slides, as well as how to design an accessible handout that provides value even after the presentation is over. Finally, you will learn how to deliver your presentation in a way that allows everyone to participate and engage.

    MathML is a markup language used to display equations and other mathematical expressions on the web and in other formats such as ePub and NIMAS. MathML is important for accessibility because it allows equations to be stored as structured text rather than images. Unlike images, structured text can be enlarged with good resolution for low-vision users who need magnification. Blind learners can use screen readers that support MathML to navigate and review the parts of mathematical expressions in the correct order, which is important for understanding complex mathematical expressions. But writing MathML code is not for the faint of heart! In this webinar, we’ll show you some ways you can write and use MathML code with little to no coding. We will then also demonstrate a number of other math accessibility tools from Texthelp, Desmos, the DIAGRAM Center and more!

    Accessibility of an OER means that all students are afforded the same opportunity to learn from a material, regardless of the tools they use for access. Learner variability is the norm, not the exception, so consideration of the ways students interact with digital materials is essential for curating and authoring inclusive OER.

    All students benefit when products are proactively and intentionally designed from the onset to be accessible and address learner variability. From test questions to web design to real-time captioning, ed tech companies need to understand the whys and hows of creating accessible educational content and software. This session will cover what early stage, growth and late stage ed tech companies should know about available resources, technical standards and legal requirements for making accessible products.
