Description Speaker(s) FAQs
 
Overview:
Everyone wins when Online Student Services are accessible to those with physical and cognitive disabilities. Imagine trying to understand a student orientation video on a college website when you cannot hear. Adding closed-captioning not only makes it more accessible, it makes the video easier to follow for diverse populations of students, from non-native English speakers to those with hearing impairments.

This webinar will address the challenges and barriers faced by students with disabilities when accessing digital content. We will introduce student testimonials and discuss accessibility as a basic civil right. By introducing digital documents, web applications, and other multimedia tools, we will demonstrate specific ways that the entire campus community can benefit from efforts to comply with accessibility requirements. Participants will learn about basic accessibility compliance requirements for digital content in student services including how to assess current programs and implement innovative, cost-effective tools. Participants will also receive accessibility checklists to help them navigate present and future needs.

Objectives:
Participants will be able to:
  • Locate closed-captioned videos via YouTube
  • Use the WAVE tool to assess the accessibility of webpages
  • Add an alternative description to an image in Microsoft Word
  • Clearly name a hyperlink in a document or webpage
