Intopia’s next free webinar will focus on accessibility overlays. The webinar will be held on Wednesday 13 March at 1pm AEDT (GMT+11) and will be a conversation with our Head of Inclusive Training Russ Weakley, and Senior Digital Accessibility Consultants Julie Grundy and Neil Jarvis. Registration is not required, and you can join through Zoom on the day.

One of the most talked about ‘solutions’ for web accessibility in recent times is overlays, being promoted as an easy step to be inclusive and accessible. But while they’ve grown in prominence, so has the criticism and whether they can effectively do the job. So can an overlay actually do everything it says it will?

Join Russ Weakley, Julie Grundy and Neil Jarvis for an in-depth discussion on overlays. They’ll talk about what overlays actually are, what they intend to achieve, but also where they miss the mark.

Our panellists will weigh up the pros and cons of overlays compared to other solutions for digital accessibility compliance, and alternatives for you to consider to achieve compliance. Russ and Julie will talk about overlays from a technical implementation perspective, and Neil will reflect on his own personal experience with overlays as a blind assistive technology user.

The webinar is free to attend and you can join the webinar from 1pm AEDT. A recording will also be released on our YouTube channel for anyone unable to attend live.
