508 Compliant Webinars
Efficient. Accessible. Simple.
Allow us to help you deliver accessible webinars for your deaf and hard of hearing attendees
You’ve been tasked with setting up a webinar. That can be challenging. Add that your government agency employer or client requires that the webinar be 508 compliant and you’re just not sure how to begin?
At 508 Webinar we are your compliance authorities, webinar hosting professionals, GoToWebinar guides, and transcription and closed-captioning experts.
Your Accessible Webinar Hosting Specialists
Industry Leading Webinar Hosting
We work with Citrix to offer GoToWebinar as our hosting platform. It’s one of the most widely used online webinar services in the world. No proprietary software to learn. No extensive training to overcome. Just straightforward, stress-free solutions at your fingertips! Pair this with our added layer of professional 508 compliance and you have a best-in-class partnership waiting to serve your accessible webinar hosting needs.
FREE Live Transcription Services
Real-time transcription services (aka live captioning services) are a 508 Webinar hallmark. We understand that quality, error-free transcription is crucial for every webinar we host. As your Section 508 compliance experts we ensure that each webinar is attended by a professional transcriber at no additional charge so that your deaf and hard of hearing attendees receive the information in real-time just like every webinar participant.
Sign Language Interpreter Services
Upon request, we will provide you with an American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter to ensure your webinar meets the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) guidelines for the deaf and hard of hearing. Adding a sign language translator will take you beyond the minimum compliance requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act. Provide the absolute best access to your webinar for your deaf and hard of hearing participants.
All of our online webinars include a free closed-captioning text layer added directly to the edited recording. Beginning in 2018 it’s the law! As your leading 508 compliancy experts, we equip our clients with the tools needed before they become mandated. It’s the right thing to do for your webinar participants, whether deaf, hard of hearing or non-native English speakers. Closed captioning is also perfect when sound is not conducive to the setting.
