WEBCAST TODAY: @a11ynyc meetup – How Learning ASL Improved my Alt Text w/ @slauriat #a11y

A11yNYCToday, Tuesday January 2 2017,  at 7pm ET, Accessibility New York City (A11yNYC) will hold its monthly meetup. This month’s presentation is How Learning ASL Improved my Alt Text. Knowing how to explain things in an inherently visual language can help to explain visual images in inherently non-visual ways. The structure of description in American Sign Language has parallels with the needs of those who can’t see an image, but want to understand it. Speaker Shaun Lariaut will explore the basic concepts around alt text and the basic conceptual structure of visual description, review some examples, pick apart the process of how each piece fits together, and then run through a few examples. The session will be webcast live via A11yNYC YouTube Channel with closed captions.
