In Light of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA), how do we make your conference audio visual presentations and on-line technologies accessible and compliant?
 
The Act specifies that providers shall use reasonable efforts to ensure that its policies, practices and procedures are consistent with the following principles:
  1. The goods or services must be provided in a manner that respects the dignity and independence of persons with disabilities.
  2. The provision of goods or services to persons with disabilities and others must be integrated unless an alternate measure is necessary, whether temporarily or on a permanent basis, to enable a person with a disability to obtain, use or benefit from the goods or services.
  3. Persons with disabilities must be given an opportunity equal to that given to others to obtain, use and benefit from the goods or services.  
Knowing this, how do you make your conferences and events accessible and compliant?  Join this session and discover how to ensure your room set-up, your audio-visual including webcasting, and your on-line technologies, under the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 (ie: website, registration system, social media presence and outreach etc.), address the needs of all your attendees and enhance their learning opportunities. 
 
Learning Objectives:
  1. Learn how to work with your audio-visual supplier to ensure your audio-visual enhances learning for attendees with disabilities or special needs
  2. Learn what questions to ask your webcasting provider to ensure your system provides enhanced accessibility
  3. Learn how on-line technologies work, what technologies are available, and what questions to ask, under the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0, to ensure the technology works for attendees with disabilities or special needs
  4. Learn what to take into considerations when setting up your meeting rooms so attendees with disabilities or special needs have the best experience possible 
This program will also be available in Ottawa on February 11th OTTAWA DETAILS.
