In my Zoom webinar, I’ll give you 10 easily actionable tips to make your Facebook posts more accessible and interesting to screenreader users, and provide a welcoming space for you to ask questions.

You don’t have to change everything or make your feed look boring. Small things can make a big difference, and they often end up helping more people than you originally intended to.

Why is accessibility important?

Nobody wants to feel excluded, but sometimes on social media there is content that I, and other screenreader users like me, just have to scroll on past. Imagine if there were things in your feed that were written in another language – you have no translate button, no dictionary, no visual clues, and therefore no access. If you want to know what it is, you have to go and find someone who speaks the language, or just never know!

As a business owner, you don’t want to lose potential customers just because they couldn’t access your posts. You do want people to keep coming back and telling their friends. At the moment there is quite a lot of inaccessible content out there, so if you can lead the way by being inclusive, you’re already setting your business apart from those who haven’t started thinking about this yet.

Who am I?

My background is as a Communications Manager and English language teacher. I care about communicating well, in multiple languages. I want to help people to get their message across clearly and to be heard.

As a blind adult who uses a screenreader, I also care about accessibility. The internet and social media are a big part of my life – personally and professionally – but there are areas where things could be better. I don’t have access to important information, can’t laugh at some jokes, and sometimes miss offers that would be interesting and relevant to me. I want to do something to change that.
