    We're all very well accustomed to online and remote meetings in 2023. "Oh sorry I was on mute" - is this still happening to anyone else? Beyond these unique challenges presented by online and remote working, could lie both visible and invisible accessibility barriers. In particular, for people with disabilities and additional needs. 

    In this episode, Texthelper Sammy will give you tips and advice on how to make your remote and online meetings more accessible. She will take you beyond the built in accessibility features in the platforms, to give you ways that you can create a sense of belonging that makes your work or education setting more inclusive for everyone.

    #302 The impact of disabling content explored

    #302 The impact of disabling content explored

    1 in 6  people live with some form of disability. Yet, only 4% of businesses are focused on making offerings inclusive of disability. This means that people with disabilities are often met with online experiences where they feel disregarded as customers, potential employees, and members of the community.


    By taking action to make our digital content accessible, we can change that. 

    In fact, when our content is inclusive, everyone can benefit. This includes individuals with cognitive differences which are often not visible, such as autism, dyslexia, ADHD, and more. 

    In this episode, we’re joined by Jamie Shields, Principal Disability Accessibility & ERG Lead at AMS. Jamie also works self employed as a speaker, trainer and accessibility consultant. Jamie is registered blind, and is also Autistic and ADHD. Jamie will be sharing what we mean by ‘disabling content’, and the impact on users and businesses when digital accessibility isn’t considered.
