||E-learning Accessibility Workshop in Pune
|| Accessibility has become the buzz word in the IT industry and so has E-learning! Net Systems invites you for a training programme on ‘Designing Accessible E-learning in Flash’ on 4th May, 200 at Pune.
Its good to see corporate taking the initiative to train their employees in accessibility. This helps us achieve our vision for creating an inclusive society. Following is the brief about the training programme:
Education is the right of every human being and ‘Knowledge’ is essential for the development of an individual.
For people with disabilities, education is a light through which they can build their future. The conventional methods of learning included books that deprived people with disabilities, especially the visually impaired as approximately 80% of the learning is done through vision.
People with disabilities use assistive technology such as screen readers, speech-to-text software, and onscreen keyboards, to use computers. These technologies help them to bridge the digital divide and give them education and employment.
With the technological advancements in the area of education such as multimedia, people with disabilities can also build their skill-sets. The question here is whether the multimedia content ‘is accessible’ to the technology used by people with disabilities.
