Social Media Accessibility - Live Training Event

March 29, 2023
10:00am - 11:00am

Alt-text, captions, and color contrast, oh my! Incorporating best practices from the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) on social media can feel like a daunting task. Yet, by not abiding by the recommendations in these guidelines, marketers are missing out on a huge, untapped market in the disability community. Not to mention, disabled people themselves have a frusturating and incomplete user experience with brands who are not prioritizing accessibility. Learn what types of sociaal content to avoid, the do's and don'ts of captions, how to identify compliant color contrast, and get a crash course on alt-text in this Social Media Accessibility training course. 

Join LaVant in this ONLINE 60-minute training designed for social media managers, content marketing teams, social media agencies, channel owners, and others who are eager to learn how to take their clients' social media presence to the next level with digital accessibility and disability inclusivity. 

Tuition: Tuition for this training is $349/USD and includes 7-day access to the training recording, starting the day after training, and digital downloads of the training outline and tip sheet(s) with examples.
