Empowering Access Through Technology: A Virtual Conference on Digital Accessibility
September 14, 2021 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm$50
Everything about our world is digital these days, which means that all of it needs to be accessible, too.
Join us for a one day crash course that will teach you everything you need to know about how to make sure your online content is accessible.
As many as 1.2 million South Carolinians with disabilities may find it difficult or impossible to buy your goods, read your blogs, watch your videos, purchase your services, as well as use your interfaces to create and share, if your content is not created and published in an accessible way. That means that your websites must be coded correctly, your videos and livestreams must have closed captioning, your images must have alt text, your writing must be in plain language, and more.
The Empowering Access through Technology conference will focus on how to make sure people with and without disabilities can access your online content. We will teach you all of the basics on creating accessible online content in a simple, straightforward way, that will leave you feeling confident to apply these practices to your own business!
Who should attend? Anyone who studies/works in web development, marketing, communications, social media, etc., or anyone who runs an online shop or business!
