Inclusive event design
Content Accessibility: Captioning, Sign Language, & Alt Text
To make events inclusive for deaf participants, you can provide:
Communication Access Realtime Translation (CART) captioning via a provider who translates all speech to text in real-time. CART can also be beneficial for individuals who speak English as a second language or those who have intellectual disabilities.
American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation during presentations and group collaboration.
For some, CART captioning may be sufficient. If you are already providing CART captioning during your event, we recommend following up individually with people who requested ASL interpreters to ask if CART captioning fulfills their needs or if they would still like an ASL interpreter.
