WEBINAR OVERVIEW

Since 1984, UW's accessibility task force has been working closely with departments and their faculty to educate and incorporate tools to facilitate classroom accessibility. UW's vision is to "educate a diverse student body" that values "excellence, collaboration, innovation, and respect."

At UW, they use two approaches to accessibility: accommodations, such as captioned videos, and universal design. With everything they implement they always ask, "how could we make this product more accessible and usable to all?" 

In this webinar, Terill Thompson, Sheryl Burgstahler, and Doug Hayman will describe their multi-faceted approach to video accessibility, including their strategies and funding model for supporting captioning on campus, their research into various methods of producing and delivering audio description, and tools they've developed to support their video accessibility goals. 

 Topics will include:

  • An overview of UW's accessibility policy and efforts
  • UW's strategies and funding model for supporting captioning on campus
  • Methods for producing and delivering audio description
  • Tools UW has developed to support  video accessibility goals
