    Best practices for accessible meetings

    Best practices for accessible meetings

    One person speaks at a time
    This helps people who are deaf and hard of hearing to keep track of who is speaking, people who are blind and low vision who can’t see non-verbal cues, and people attending remotely.

    Speakers should state their name each time they speak
    This helps communication providers, people who are blind or who have low vision, note takers or meeting recordings, and other attendees know who is speaking at all times.

    Presenters should describe images and graphics on any slides
    This benefits people who are blind or have low vision, as well as people attending remotely.

    Call from a quiet location
    If joining remotely and providing public comment, ensure you are in a quiet location where there is no background noise.
