Webinar accessibility check

Do you have to participate in any webinar meetings with your teacher?

Here are some tips that you can ask the presenter to consider in order to adjust to your needs and to help make the webinar experience accessible to you.

Visual impairment

Ask for:

  • an audible presentation that outlines key content clearly

  • an accessible copy of the presentation slides before the webinar meeting so you can prepare some questions and comments to copy and paste into the Chat box

  • any external links to websites or documents before the webinar meeting

  • a verbal indication on when the presenter is moving to the next slide

  • a summary of key points after each presentation or group of slides

  • the Chat box to be placed closer to the top so that you can tab to it more easily

  • the key threads of conversation from the Chat box to be communicated verbally

  • more time to participate with your responses if you are using assistive technology

  • an audible explanation of an activity that you are not able to participate easily in e.g. a poll or a whiteboard activity

  • an extra facilitator to communicate the main points to you

  • an audio recording of the webinar so you can review the main points afterwards

Hearing impairment

Ask for:

  • a visual presentation that clearly conveys all the main points that the presenter is covering

  • a larger sized Chat pane that you are comfortable with

  • a font size that you are comfortable with

  • an extra facilitator to communicate the main points to you in a separate, private Chat pod

  • the presenter or facilitator to type any new relevant points into the Chat box so that you don’t miss out on what is being discussed verbally

  • more time to participate with your responses if you are using assistive technology

  • the presenter to be positioned so that you can lip read if using a webcam

  • captions on any video that is being played

  • the installation of the Caption Pod so you can follow real-time captioning

  • information on how you can use the Caption pod so you can change the font, use it to make comments and save the transcript

  • a video recording of the webinar so you can review the main points afterwards

Dexterity difficulties

Ask for:

  • a presentation that clearly conveys all the main points that the presenter is covering

  • an accessible copy of the presentation slides before the webinar meeting so you can prepare some questions and comments to copy and paste into the Chat box

  • the Chat box to be placed closer to the top so that you can tab to it more easily

  • a larger size Chat pane that you are comfortable with

  • a font size that you are comfortable with
