Websites, Video, Mobile Apps, + Games: Accessibility Webinar
Wednesday, May 15, 2013 12:00:00 PM PDT - 1:00:00 PM PDT
Web sites, online videos, mobile apps, and video games have become an important way for organizations to reach audiences, deliver content, and enhance audience experiences. Mobile apps are enabling audio tours for museum audiences, video games are being used as educational tools for children and adults, and organizations rely on their Web presence for communication, marketing, ticket sales, and exhibitions. Given the increasing reliance on these electronic devices, organizations should take steps to ensure that they are accessible to all audiences, including those with vision, hearing, mobility, or cognitive disabilities. By taking steps to build accessibility into the design of Web sites, mobile apps, videos, and video games, organizations can be sure that people with disabilities and older adults can access their programs, services, and features with ease. Join us for a webinar featuring experts from the National Center for Accessible Media at WGBH and the AbleGamers Foundation, who will share basic steps you can take to help make your electronic content accessible for all audiences. Speakers: Larry Goldberg, Director, Carl and Ruth Shapiro Family National Center for Accessible Media at WGBH Mark Barlet, President, CEO, Able Gamers Foundation Johnny Richardson, Industry Outreach Director, Able Gamers Foundation You can listen to the webinar using your computer speakers or dial-in to 1-877-685-5350, participant code: 739587 An archive will be available a few days after the webinar.
