Accessibility accommodations now part of all W3C workshops

W3C announced today that as part of our growing concern for inclusion, all W3C workshops will now include the following standard accessibility accommodations:

  • English captions available on all pre recorded presentations, before the live sessions
  • Real-time English captions available during the live sessions
  • American Sign language and other services will depend on participant requests

W3C organizes Workshops to promote early involvement in the development of W3C activities from Members and the public. The goal of a workshop is usually either to convene experts and other interested parties for an exchange of ideas about a technology or policy, or to address the pressing concerns of W3C Members.
