Knowbility Website Clinics

October Knowbility Website Clinics

  • ISL Interpreted
  • Speech to Text

Venue: Online

15–22 October 2021

Is your website accessible to your audience members, funders, and staff with disabilities?

Accessibility barriers may prevent as many as 20% of your potential audience from getting information, buying tickets, or donating to your organisation.

For a heavily subsidised fee of €75, arts and cultural organisations gained a high-level overview of their websites digital accessibility.

Delivered by digital accessibility expert Sharron Rush, Executive Director of Knowbility, organisations simply provided their website URL at the time of registration and Sharron reviewed their website and provided actionable feedback on ways to improve the experience for all in 20 minute clinic sessions.

These 20 minute clinics took place on Friday 15 and Friday 22 October 2021 between 1pm – 6:30pm IST.

Live Speech to Text (CART) , Irish, American, and British Sign Language interpretation was available on request at the time of booking.

This event took place in Zoom.

Irish Sign Language (ISL) is the sign language used in the republic of Ireland. The language makes use of space and involves movement of hands, body, face and head. A sign language interpreter interprets what a person says or signs simultaneously, or immediately afterwards.

Speech to Text is a process of converting speech into text.
