Upcoming Webinar: Access and Inclusion Through Digital, May 24

Access and Inclusion Through Digital
Wednesday, May 24 3-4 PM EDT
You might think of digital as a potential barrier to entry—how do you know a visitor’s expertise or comfort level with technology? But there are ways to build inclusive digital projects that can even help you engage new or aspirational audiences. A website or mobile app can open up your experience to audiences that can’t access your physical space due to physical, cognitive, geographic, or financial reasons. A digital interactive can expand your ability to interpret an exhibit for visitors you might not otherwise reach.
We’ll discuss ways to design digital systems that are accessible to multiple audiences, including individuals with limited familiarity with technology, and those with physical or cognitive disabilities. We’ll focus on ways to understand and account for potential accessibility issues from the start of a project through user experience methodologies, including persona development, contextual inquiry, and usability testing. We’ll also review methods for considering accessibility throughout the design and development process, including accessibility audits and Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG).
This webinar is for exhibit designers and developers, curators, content developers, and museum technologists.
If you have any questions, please contact Amelia Longo at amelia@interactivemechanics.com.
