Strategies for Developing Accessible
Documents and Presentations 


When: Wednesday, July 21, 2021, at 11:00-12:00 P.T./2:00-3:00 E.T.

Accessibility is the design of websites, documents, tools, and technologies in a way that can be used by as many people as possible. Making materials and tools accessible allows individuals with a disability to participate and have access to information, ensuring that the full audience of an organization is reached. About 61 million people in the US have a disability, and building documents and tools that are accessible ensures that equal rights and opportunities are being extended to everyone. The National Center on Law and Elder Rights and RespectAbility are committed to making all materials and presentations accessible, and will share some promising practices that advocates can use in developing their own trainings and materials for the public. We will also go through some of the basic how-to’s of accessibility that everyone can start incorporating in their work.

In this training, presenters will cover:

  • Why accessibility matters;
  • Different ways to be conscious of accessibility; and
  • Basic steps to make documents and presentations accessible that anyone can follow with no technology expertise needed.


  • Remy Alexander, NCLER Program and Communications Associate, Justice in Aging,
  • Eric Ascher, Communications Associate, RespectAbility

Closed captioning will be available on this webcast. A link with access to the captions will be shared through GoToWebinar’s chat box shortly before the webcast start time.

This training will be presented in a WEBCAST format to accommodate more participants. Due to the high volume of participants, computer audio will be the only option to listen to the presentation. No telephone call-in number will be provided. Please plan accordingly. Thank you. 

This webcast will be recorded and available on our website shortly after the presentation. The recording and training materials will also be emailed to all registrants within a few days after the training.

The webcast will take place on Wednesday, July 21, 2021, at 11:00 a.m. PT/2:00 p.m. ET and will run for one hour.
