Kicking off a day of conversations about accessibility in the digital space, Insights Day 2 will open with a look at the priorities and inequities that prevent meaningful textual descriptions of images and data representations, and the steps we can and must take to open our work to everyone.

ONA Insights featured sessions will be recorded and broadcast virtually, and All-Access Pass Holders will have the option to join us for a watch party and facilitated discussion.

This session is designed for:

  • Editors and journalists who would like to better communicate with their blind and disabled audiences
  • Newsroom leaders dedicated to digital accessibility without qualification or equivocation
  • Anyone interested in building accessible, accountable, community-oriented, digital news
