Working with Presenters

Work with presenters to ensure they’re meeting the access needs of participants. Provide them with information about creating accessible materials. Encourage them to use people first language and avoid jargon, acronyms, and expressions, which people with cognitive disabilities can interpret literally, creating confusion. Remind them to pace conversation appropriately for the captioning process and describe all images on slides and polls. Also, recommend they use a headset to ensure quality audio, which is helpful to all participants and captionists.
