Social media has become a regular part of our daily lives. Whether it is keeping up with your family and friends’ latest activities on Facebook, engaging with people on Twitter, or watching the latest viral video on TikTok, there’s always something competing for our attention. But the lack of accessibility of social media platforms and content make it difficult for blind users to keep up with the latest trends and activities on social media.

The National Federation of the Blind in partnership with the Maryland Department of Disabilities is hosting a Social Media Accessibility Boutique where you can learn strategies for successfully navigating social media platforms as a blind person. The boutique will also feature tips on how you can make social media content accessible to blind and low vision users.

The Social Media Accessibility Boutique will focus on the Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram platforms. The training will include:

  • Tips and recommendations on navigating the platforms with screen readers;
  • Tips on finding and engaging with content; and
  • Best practices for posting accessible content on social media.

Register today for the Social Media Accessibility Boutique, November 29, 2022, 2:00-3:30 p.m.
