Start Date: October 29, 2020

End Date:

Location: Online


The COVID-19 pandemic inevitably boosted use of technology. Since the onset of the pandemic, online tools and technology-based services played a growing role in many of our lives. Persons with disabilities were by no means an exception. Although barriers remain, preventing equal access to the whole range of products and services available, accessibility is increasing. This helped persons with disabilities cope with the current situation.

The aim of this online workshop is to present a range of popular online tools and services and explain how accessible they are for persons with disabilities. We will talk about accessibility in technology supporting remote working, education, public services and communication.Join speakers from Facebook, Microsoft, the European Broadcasting Union and G3ict's James Thurston.
