Free Webinars on BrowseAloud, Point and Web Accesibility

Register for one of Bridges’ free 40 min webinars on Accessibility on the Web with BrowseAloud and Point.  We know its a busy time of year but there are two pertinent deadlines looming that make these sessions particularly timely.

New Ontario Customer Service standards are coming into effect January 2012, under Access On. Deploying these tools  makes you in compliance with them.

A grant currently available from Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC) could pay for most of your implementation of BrowseAloud and Point. But applications have to be in by September 23rd. (Just the applications need to be done, not the implementation itself).

To register for any of the webinars, simply email bogdan@bridges-canada.com.
