201 How To Make Video and Image Content Accessible for Everyone

10:00 AM - 11:00 AM Wednesday, September 29

You’ve created some amazing learning content and now you’re ready to share it with the world, right? Well, that depends! Do you know if your content is accessible to people with disabilities? In this digital-first world, creating video and visual content has never been easier. But we may be leaving a lot of learners behind.

Creating great content is only half the battle. If your images, visuals, and videos aren’t accessible to everyone, you’re doing a disservice to your audience. Creating content that is accessible to people with disabilities ensures that anyone can gain the knowledge and understanding you have to share. And, it’s easier than you might think.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How leading with an accessibility-first mindset will make your content better for everyone
  • Three easy ways to ensure your videos are accessible
  • The science and art behind alternative text for images
  • How to ensure anyone can access and understand charts, graphs, and tables
