One of the most vital goals for any event is to ensure that every individual can attend the event with ease and can therefore benefit from it. This means facilitating every single one of them at all times, based on their respective needs.
Unfortunately enough, accommodating accessibility is usually an afterthought while planning any event. As a result, a large majority of the audience is excluded for being specially-abled or carrying minor or major impairments. So, as a virtual events provider, vFairs is promising a platform that reaches the doorstep of every individual, regardless of their natural limitations.
Let’s walk you through the accessibility options that vFairs offers to customers hosting their events online:
Attendees with visual impairments or cognitive disabilities can switch color contrasts to support them in reading the text and navigating through the online event with utmost ease.
Text Size Adjustment
Guests have the option to change the size of the font to zoom-in and out in order to support their vision and read through the event without any difficulty.
Guests with visual impairments can access as much information as the ones without them via the on-screen text narration, therefore allowing them to independently access the event.
Webinars with Subtitles
Webinars can be set up with captions to ensure that no information is missed out at any point and for anyone.
The user experience is further simplified by a clear and straightforward layout for easy navigation and exploration of the entire virtual event.
Why is it necessary to make your event accessible?
While job-seeking, for example, is in itself a nerve wracking process, it is an even greater challenge for those suffering from disabilities. vFairs aims to empower users to take charge of their day-to-dat activities ranging from seeking employment, to exploring universities to advance their education.
Similarly, organizations and corporations can benefit from an exceptionally diverse pool of highly talented professionals, which they would otherwise not be able to reach, because of the stringent limitations, geographical and physical.
Various institutions like Royal Holloway of London Open Day, Cornell University’s Resource Fair and Community Business Conference 2017 are incredible examples of what accessible virtual events have successfully achieved with vFairs.
A number of reasons such as cost savings, maximized reach, detailed reporting and environment-friendliness have been increasing the demand for virtual events amongst all kinds of organizations, corporations and universities in the recent times. However, it is time to fill up the gaps that ensure a truly exceptional experience for every individual visiting your event.
If you wish to reach the globe and offer value to people from the comfort of their homes, it is imperative to cater to those who are normally left behind but can offer a lot at the same time.
