All our online events include real-time captioning. We are using both Adobe Connect and Blackboard Collaborate to stream the virtual confernece. Both products are caption friendly and provide components for the caption stream. The video recording of the webcast will be captioned and posted following the event. (This usually takes a number of weeks).

Screenreader Access

Both Adobe Connect and Blackboard Collaborate are screenreader accessible. We will post tips for using both products with a screenreader shortly.

Ticket Types

Individual Ticket

Group Ticket

Broadcast of the event is limited to one location. You may purchase additional "site add-ons" to show the event at multiple locations.

Site add-on

This option, when purchased with a group ticket, allows you to project or show the webinar at an additional site. Once you have purchased a group ticket you can purchase as many "site add-ons" as needed.
