Event Anouncement: If you serve learners with disabilities and would like to gain a better view of what it means for materials to be accessible and to see how inaccessible some materials can be for students who rely on screen readers, then this session is for you. Seeing how screen readers operate with poorly designed materials can be truly eye-opening. Learn tips for making adult literacy content more accessible.
