Social Media Breakfast | Social Media for All of Us: Making Content Accessible & Inclusive
Presented by: Hannah Wente and Jim Denham of the Wisconsin Council of the Blind & Visually Impaired, and Stacy Harbaugh of designCraft
Have you ever wondered how your content is accessed by people who are blind or visually impaired? As web accessibility and creating inclusive communities becomes more prevalent, it’s vital to evaluate what you’re doing each day on social media to ensure everyone can participate. People often do not know where to start in making posts accessible. In this session, we’ll give you the tools you need to take the first step. This will include demonstrations of some of the assistive technology so you can learn how people with disabilities access social media platforms. Whether you’re an alt text novice or could write image descriptions in your sleep—this is for you!
