We're so excited to learn and share together during the Accessibility Summit 2021! Here is everything you need to know to get the most out of the day.

Event schedule

The Accessibility Summit 2021 will be live from 9 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. CDT on Tuesday, July 20, 2021. You can view the schedule online and adjust it to display in your time zone. Add events to “My Schedule” to create a personalized plan for the day!

A few things to keep in mind during sessions:

  • Sessions are pre-recorded to allow for video editing and captioning.
  • Ask questions of the presenter in the session’s Q&A box.
  • Connect with the speaker and other attendees through the session chat window.

Community group discussions will be held live from 12:30-1:15 p.m. CDT. This is a great opportunity to connect with your peers and discuss digital accessibility. These discussions will be hosted through Google Meet. Check out the options in the event schedule to find the link to join the meeting.

Browser compatibility

To get the best experience in the Swoogo platform, we recommend using Chromium based browsers such as Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge. We recommend always using the latest version of your chosen browser.

Mozilla Firefox or Safari can also provide good experiences; however, there can be times where there may be slight visual differentiations (video controls, web design, etc.)

Internet Explorer is now deprecated and Microsoft no longer supports it; therefore, we do not recommend using this browser to access our event.

Session replays

As an attendee, you can access session replays via the event schedule through Aug. 3, 2021.

HighEdWeb paid membership provides unlimited on-demand access to the Accessibility Summit recordings. The Professional Development Library includes all recordings from this event and other HighEdWeb conferences.
