Organizer

Access Point

Come join me to celebrate my birthday by improving digital accessibiity on social media. We will add image descriptions to popular Facebook pages, memes, and other sites to increase access to the internet for people who use adaptive technology. Lynne Maleef, an accessible technology expert, will teach participants about sighted guide technique to safely assist people who are blind and have low vision.

Drinks and snacks will be provided so please RSVP!

Please send me an e-mail at accesspointphiladelphia@gmail.com if there are any accommodations I can set up to help you participate. This space is wheelchair accessible and has accessible restrooms.

You can still help us add image descriptions to the internet even if you can’t attend in person. I’ll let you know how!
