DIAGRAM Training Webinar a Resounding Success

Bryan Gould, Geoff Freed, and Lucia Hasty drew almost 100 registrants for their webinar this month entitled, “Accessible Images: From Creation to End User.” Participants got fresh, well-presented information that included topics such as

  • tactile diagrams overview
  • decision process for whether to create a tactile diagram or describe an image
  • how to create image descriptions
  • how end users navigate image descriptions and what they sound like
  • demonstration of DTB readers such as Read2Go (iOS) and discussion of DTB authoring tool options
  • discussion of which devices can read image descriptions, including the gh player
  • updates on DIAGRAM at CSUN

Comments from satisfied participants:

“Very informative and cutting edge information.  We need more of this.”

“I and several of my alt text writers and reviewers attended. It was particularly helpful to get a short overview of the JAWS reader. It adds a perspective that writers don’t often get. Thanks.”
