Description

The International Association of Accessibility Professionals (IAAP) Webinar Series allows you gain valuable accessibility knowledge to help you in your career. This month’s webinar on Wednesday, March 18 features best practices and technologies for captioning and audio description, as well as the business impact.

Captioning and Audio Description Technology and Best Practices

Target Audience: Web Technical, Web Standards, Government, Education, Library Services, Broadcasting, Any Online Media Provider

Overview: There have been significant advancements in the quality of accessible media as well as the technology to support it in recent years. However, a disparity in the availability of accessible media exists between these two main components of the practice, specifically in regards to captioning versus audio description for the web and TV. Despite that, best practice development and standardization of these components continues to be formalized. General rules of practice for both of these components have developed in an effort to ensure the consistent creation and delivery of accessible media so that consumers of that content will always know what to expect. This session will cover the implementation of best practices and technologies for captioning and audio description, as well as the business impact. 

Webinar Format: The webinars will be hosted in the Adobe Connect webinar platform, which is accessible with a variety of browsers and on mobile devices. Captioning will be provided. For additional details about Adobe Connect accessibility, go to this Adobe Connect Accessibility Features page.
