New Feature Enable One-Click 508 Compliant Accessibility Page for Virtual Events
Bethesda, MD – April 17, 2018
Communique Conferencing, Inc., the world leader in conferencing and virtual events, today announced new functionality that enables a 508-compliant version of any virtual event or virtual environment. With one-click in the platform control panel, online event hosts can provide their attendees with an accessibility page that includes relevant event content and materials.
The new platform functionality presents a straightforward menu with links and titles that are recognized by screen assistive technologies like screen readers, which allow blind and visually impaired users to read the on-screen content. Almost all content within a virtual event can be included on the accessibility page, such as keynote webcast sessions, sponsor or partner booths and associated documents and resources.
“508 compliance is a first for virtual conference platforms,” said Adelphi Kennedy, VP of Communications at Communique. “We think this is an important investment in virtual conference platform, and we are pleased to support our clients in producing 508-compliant events.”
