Practicing social distancing has changed the way we communicate particularly with the rapid move to video conferencing platforms such as Zoom and Skype. Being online can represent lots of challenges for people with disability, but it also provides opportunities that can lead to increased accessibility which enables people with disability to participate in a more equal and inclusive way.
Just like designing an accessible website or face to face meeting, a bit of planning and consideration is all it takes to make your online meeting accessible. This short resource will help you make your online meetings more inclusive.
The tips in this resource focus on making meetings inclusive for people who are Deaf or hard of hearing and people who are blind or vision impaired when video conferencing. However it’s worth remembering that embedding these practices into all your meetings is simply just good inclusive practice, which is better for everyone!
