Free Webinar: The DIAGRAM Center: Making Digital Images Accessible

This Webinar next Wednesday is timely and important. I heard these
presenters at CSUN last March, and for me it was the best Presentation I
attended. Take my word. It is timely and valuable and entertaining.

The DIAGRAM Center: Making Digital Images Accessible
Presenters: Anh Bui and Fred Slone
Wednesday, August 8 at 11 AM Pacific, Noon Mountain, 1 PM Central and 2
PM Eastern
With data visualization and image-heavy content becoming large parts of
today's information landscape, the DIAGRAM Center brings together the
leading minds in image accessibility to realize its mission of making it
easier, faster, and more cost effective to create and use accessible images
so that students with print disabilities have timely access to the
information they need.
This session will cover the free tools and standards that the DIAGRAM
Center, managed by Benetech and funded by OSEP, is developing. Poet,
DIAGRAM's free web-based tool for adding image descriptions to books, will
be demonstrated. We'll also see how Benetech's accessible digital library
Bookshare is using DIAGRAM's work to make image descriptions available in
the collection.
