Of course, accessibility is about more than just mobility. There are many different types of disabilities which require different adjustments. Part of finding an accessible venue is ensuring it can facilitate these.
If your event involves speeches or presentations, there are many ways you can make sure these are understood clearly. Sign language interpreters can be hired for live events or virtual presentations, and you can hire a professional captioner for accurate real-time captioning.
While less accurate, auto-captioning and transcription are also available on most virtual platforms. You may want to consider sharing slides with participants beforehand, too.
Lighting in venues can also make a big difference in accessibility – for example, for those that lip read. Dimming lights can also cause problems for those with visual impairments, so ensure there is sufficient lighting.
You might also consider hosting a hybrid event to ensure attendees who don't feel comfortable or able to attend in-person are not excluded and can still engage with the event.
