Date: Wednesday, December 19, 2012

On-Demand Webinar

NOTE: Large files will take more time to download. 


Have you ever observed how people with disabilities are experiencing your content on social media? Is someone who uses a screen reader or other assistive technology able to understand your content on Twitter or Facebook? Join us for a 20-minute sprint where you’ll learn specific tips for making your agency’s social media content more accessible. We’ll go through tools and tactics you can use to help make sure your social media engagements are readable for all your communities.
NOTE: You may notice that this webinar is shorter than our typical DigitalGov University webinar. We’re experimenting with this shorter format to allow us to focus on a narrow topic and accommodate people’s busy schedules. We look forward to your feedback after the event to hear if this shorter format is something we should do more often.

What You'll Learn  

Participants will learn tips to make your content more accessible on:

  • Google+
  • Twitter
  • Facebook 
  • YouTube
  • Video, Audio, Images
