    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.

    A Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT) is meant to provide a standard format for vendors to report the extent to which a digital material or technology product meets accessibility standards. Despite recent updates meant to streamline the VPAT and make it easier to use, the VPAT remains a highly technical document. In this webinar, we will discuss the benefits and limitations of the VPAT and then walk you through an exemplar VPAT as we provide tips for what to look for in each section when interpreting a VPAT from a vendor.

    MathML being written on a blackboard.

    2:00PM – 3:00PM ET on Tuesday, January 22, 2019

    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!
