Social Media Management with a Screen Reader

taught by: Anthony Vasquez

Description:

In order to be relevant online, organizations must have a communications strategy that includes social media in its toolbox. Come learn how Knowbility’s communications specialist uses Buffer, a commercial social media scheduler, and the JAWS screen reader to schedule and manage content. This lecture will show step-by-step how social media management is accessible to blind people. Key takeaways include the power of experimentation (Buffer wasn’t the first product Knowbility tried), the importance behind AT training for people with disabilities, and features of the Buffer platform that could be improved.
