The process of ensuring that course materials, documents and communications meet accessibility guidelines has a reputation for being time consuming and difficult. This workshop will demonstrate and discuss the uses of SensusAccess, a new self-service tool at Colgate designed to enhance document accessibility. SensusAccess can be especially useful when working with PDFs.

This will take place as a Zoom meeting. Participants will receive the link to join the meeting via their confirmation email.
