Hi CATO friends!

It's been a while since we've chatted.  I just saw this free webinar coming next Friday re: the accessibility of Zoom.  Since all our colleges have access to it, thought it might be interesting,  We have our eLearning retreat that day so I can't attend so I thought I'd share instead.

Miss you all!

Subject: [Athen] EASI Webinar on Zoom Accessibility September 14 at 11 AM PT

Hello everyone,

In collaboration with EASI, we will be offering a webinar on the topic of Zoom accessibility on September 14th at 11AM PT. Zoom is a web conferencing software that is quickly becoming more widely used by educational institutions, government agencies, and various commercial companies. The University of Washington has been collaborating with Zoom for a couple of years to improve its accessibility and overall user experience. While there is still a ways to go to achieve full accessibility,  we believe that Zoom has made great strides towards accessibility.

In this webinar, we will discuss Zoom's various accessibility features, including closed captioning, screen reader and keyboard support, as well as its screen sharing and remote control capabilities. If you are an IT professional or simply a potential user, please register to attend this seminar and feel free to invite any colleagues or friends to attend as well. Remember, there are limited seats available, so please register now if you are interested and planning to join us for an informational and interactive session.

To register for this webinar, go to EASI website<http://easi.cc/#webinar> and look for "Zoom Video Conferencing and Accessibility." Complete the registration form and meeting room details will be sent prior to the webinar.

We hope to see you there!
