Free Webinar Series on Accessible Publishing and Reading
The DAISY Consortium along with leaders in the accessible publishing and reading ecosystem will be presenting on a diverse range of topics each week. You are invited to participate in the live webinar, or afterwards review the recording at your convenience. The system we use (Zoom) is accessible, and both the live sessions and the recordings will have captions available.
We announce a new webinars on a regular basis but some of our webinars fill up very fast. Sign up to our webinar email list to be the first to know.
The presentation topics change each week. If you see a topic you are interested in and able to attend, then register for that webinar to receive your personalised link to join. For those unable to attend the live event, all webinars are recorded and published for free a few days after the event.
