Workshop Agenda: Accessibility, June 14, 2022

9:00-9:15AM - Welcome and Introductions
9:15-10:05AM - Navigating Faculty Responsibility for Accessible ICT Materials
An increased focus on closing the equity gaps in student success has brought accessibility to the forefront of current efforts to deliver optimal, supportive online learning environments for students. However, colleges often struggle to balance faculty workload (defined in negotiated bargaining contracts) with the time and expertise required to effectively build accessible learning environments. In this session, two faculty Distance Education Coordinators discuss their campus journeys through this process of ramping up faculty accessibility efforts.
Presenters: Dr. Kandace Knudson, Sacramento City College, and Wendy Riggs, College of the Redwoods
10:15-11:05AM Optimizing Accessibility in Excel 365 Workbooks
This session will cover providing alternative text for graphic elements that present content; meeting WCAG requirements for contrast for text and some non-text elements; creating tables with the proper structure; and four keys for creating accessible charts. Participans will also receive an evaluation checklist that identifies how to repair accessibility issues identified through the built-in checker and a manual review.

11:15AM-12:05PM - Compton College's Accessibility Journey
Accessibility is a huge responsibility where the old saying "It takes a village" definitely applies. As an institution, Compton College has shifted from relying primarily on @ONE’s accessibility training and have partnered with the CCC Accessibility Center to engage the entire campus on how to be more accessible. During this workshop session, we will explore how far we have come and where we would like to go.
Presenter: Dr. Airek Mathews, Distance Education Manager, Compton College

1:00-1:50PM - Social Media Accessibility
Accessibility is a common priority when building websites, but have you considered how individuals with disabilities are engaging with your brand on social media? This workshop will outline the easy practices you can implement to ensure your social media content is accessible for everyone, including disabled users.
Alexa Heinrich is the Social Media Manager for St. Petersburg College (SPC) in Central Florida and the creator of the websites Accessible Social and Social Media Tea.

2:00-2:50PM - Equidox
PDF accessibility continues to be a challenge for colleges and institutions as PDFs are popular but can be difficult to make accessible. Accessibility specialists must have the appropriate software applications for document remediation. In this session, we will discuss how Equidox, a web-based application, can assist in much of the remediation process. It now offers several new features that make it simpler for document remediation, yet stay true to the continued goal to meet and exceed WCAG guidelines.
Presenter: Shawn Jordison, Alternate Media and Assistive Technology Specialist, CCC Accessibility Center

3:00-3:30PM - Enable Zoom Automatic Transcription for More Equitable Online Classrooms and Meetings
Zoom has the capability in meetings and webinars you attend or host to have live, automatic transcriptions. This may be used by participants to easily follow the conversations or to meet accessibility requirements. Join us for this 30-minute presentation to learn about options, including what hosts and attendees can do to enable this feature.
