Thursday, September 15, 2022, 11:00 am - 12:00 pm - IAAP: Alt Text: Everything you need to know beyond just "99 Red Balloons"

Register for Alt Text: Everything you need to know beyond just "99 Red Balloons"

Description: Images, graphics, and charts are often incredibly important elements in your documents, and that makes it all the more important to make them accessible. We love to include images on our websites and digital assets. Images support and add context to our information and concepts. Media, especially social media, include images for conversions; having images on posts leads to a higher clickthrough rate and ROI (return on investment). Learn the art of writing effective alt-text. Never struggle with accessible images and graphs again! Let's apply best practices on imagery from the 80s music scene. From 99 Red Balloons shaking us all night long, to Burning Down the House we don't want to leave any of our users behind.

Tuesday, September 27, 2022, 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm - Great Lakes ADA Center: "Building a Successful Document Accessibility Program: Strategies, Methods, and Workplans for Inclusive Programs"

Register for "Building a Successful Document Accessibility Program: Strategies, Methods, and Workplans for Inclusive Programs"

Description: Accessibility programs are essential to ensuring federal agencies are inclusive of employees with disabilities, especially within digital work environments. While there is no universal method for developing effective accessibility programs, some strategies and practices are more successful than others. In the creation of digital documents, agencies frequently produce large volumes through the collaboration of many authors across federal departments, offices, and units.

This session will discuss some common features, work processes, and evaluation and implementation actions of successful document accessibility programs. Presenters from Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and Social Security Administration (SSA) will review the importance of scoping and protocols in work plans, the methods to maximize the effects of centralized document services, the effectiveness of partnering with internal groups that produce large volumes of documents, and the approaches to maximize training efforts by targeted recruitment.

This webinar will include video remote interpreting (VRI) and real-time captioning. Questions can be submitted in advance of the session or can be posed during the live webinar.
