As campus engagement increasingly includes digital mediums, the IS Technology Accessibility Team works to advance the Technology Accessibility Program and provides support and consultation for Wake Forest community members on technology accessibility.
We facilitate annual events that add an element of fun and discovery to exploring concepts of accessibility, like the #NoMouse Challenge in February. We offer training on a wide variety of topics such as do-it-yourself captioning, essentials of instructional accessibility, and how to make your documents and social media posts more accessible. We also continually build more content into a library of online accessibility resources for Wake Forest. Check out the A11Y Audio series and the Technology Accessibility Glossary to get a quick introduction to accessibility concepts, or dig into resources like how to enhance the accessibility of your virtual meetings, Google Docs, Google Slides, and more!
The IS Technology Accessibility Team is available to faculty and staff for consultation on accessibility best practices and resources. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss how we can support your work!
