Get in Formation: Making Forms Accessible Using Adobe Acrobat
You may be signed up for accessibility, but how accessible are your sign ups? If you are churning out documentation, especially forms, are you factoring in accessibility? In our demonstrative and Q&A session, we will take a deeper dive into how people with disabilities use assistive technology to read and interact with PDF forms. What works and what doesn’t?
Implementing Accessible Technology for Inclusive Hiring and Retention of Employees
It’s no secret: hiring people with disabilities makes great business sense. But so many presentations are done on the social good of the employment opportunity, and little is done after the hiring is completed. This presentation will help answer the basic question: I hired someone wonderful with a disability, what’s next? The answer is: accessible technology that promotes independence, disability empowerment, and seamless bridges with assistive technologies.
