Designing for accessibility: presentations, multimedia, and more

Digital accessibility is not only the right thing to do, but often also brings benefits to all users. Accessible design is essential for creating multimedia, presentations, and documents that take into consideration the types of accessibility issues your audience might have. This workshop will cover accessibility design practices for things like presentation design, captioning tools, and best practices for audio or video projects.

This workshop is part of the Demystifying Digital Accessibility series for GW community members seeking the tools and understanding to make their teaching, research, and communication more inclusive and accessible to all audiences.

This workshop is also part of the CREATE a Multimedia Masterpiece series for those interested in expanding their knowledge of the tools and processes for creating professional videos, podcasts, social media content, video games, or other interactive experiences.
