It is important to understand people’s accessibility requirements in advance:
- Before deciding the date of an event, you may want to look at a calendar of equality and diversity dates, including significant religious festivals.
- Provide a range of alternative registering options. For example, online, telephone and email.
- Make the registration form accessible. For example, the Events Office uses the University approved Microsoft Forms for the registration process for many events, and this has an immersive reader facility that is also suitable for screen readers.
- Give people the opportunity to communicate their requirements in the registration form. Include a box asking if they have any access requirements, with a text box for them to elaborate further.
