This fall, we’ll be talking all things legal, from the Winn-Dixie case to a full review of 2017’s digital accessibility landscape. We’ll also be exploring the FCC’s legal requirements for audio description and the implications of the recent increases in these requirements.
Then later, the University of Washington’s will be providing us with an inside look into their video accessibility strategy, and in October, the University of South Florida St. Petersburg’s will be sharing research results on the benefits of interactive transcripts and captions in online courses.
