What is Digital Accessibility?
Tuesday, March 5, 2024 4:00:00 PM UTC
Duration: 1 hour(s)
timezone icon TimeZone (UTC)
Please join the Region 2 National Preparedness Division for a webinar on Digital Accessibility.
Do you know why Digital Accessibility is important?  If Microsoft Office products like Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and Outlook along with Adobe Acrobat PDF documents cannot be read and understood by everyone, then many people would miss out on essential, potentially lifesaving information. To improve your ability to create accessible materials, the FEMA Digital Accessibility (508) Program will show you how you can create accessible documents. This webinar will showcase the built-in accessibility tools to assist document owners in creating accessible documents before posting online or distributing to others. Why? Because Digital Accessibility is everyone’s responsibility!

Who should attend: Whole community, family, caregivers, Local, State and Federal Emergency Managers, community and faith-based organizations and NGO’s. 

This event will include Live Captioning.
