Tuesday, March 15, 2022
2:00 PM - 3:30 PM Eastern Time Zone


Organizations, businesses, and public entities use social media to promote their products and mission as well as to engage members of the public. This webinar will cover how social managers and other staff can create and publish content for social media in a manner that is accessible to individuals with a variety of disabilities (vision, auditory, motor, and cognitive). The speaker will provide an overview of the basics of making content accessible on various social media platforms, including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, and YouTube. Learn tips beyond the basics such as tips on writing alt text, ensuring language is accessible, and testing your own content. Participants will have an opportunity to ask the speaker questions following the presentation.

This session is co-listed with the Accessible Technology Webinar Series. Registration is only needed once to attend. You do not need to register under both programs.
