Free Webinar: the Global Public Inclusive Infrastructure (GPII)

Presenter: Jim Tobias, Inclusive Technologies
Global Public Inclusive Infrastructure (GPII) is about building accessibility features into the infrastructure of the Internet itself. GPII will combine cloud computing, web, and platform services to make access simpler, more inclusive, available everywhere, and more affordable. When completed it will provide the infrastructure needed to make it possible for companies, organizations, and society to put the web within reach of all — by making it easier and less expensive for consumers with disabilities, ICT and AT companies, Public Access Points, employers, educators, government agencies and others to create, disseminate, and support accessibility across technologies.
Free EASI Webinar: Better Communication With Plain English
Tuesday May 22 at 11 AM Pacific, Noon Mountain, 1 PM Central and 2 PM
Eastern (all US daylight times)
Presenter: Angela Hooker
One of the hazards of academia is that people often believe they must provide lectures, papers and even Web pages using pedantic language with long compound, complex sentences and with, not 4-letter words, but 4-5 syllable words and sound like a doctor or lawyer trying to impress the client with their learning. We sometimes try to dazzle the audience rather than communicating. Government and some businesses have joined the ‘plain English’ movement.
The first goal of a Web page should be to communicate rather than to dazzle or entertain. Angela is an avid proponent of this cause.
