AAA is dedicated to make the AAA Annual Meeting as accessible as possible so that as many participants as possible can meaningfully engage with all program content, whether in Baltimore or online. All attendees are asked to join us in supporting and implementing accessible practices. We have developed a number of resources for participants to successfully implement accessible practices, which primarily address auditory and visual access needs.
If accepted, you will be asked to review accessibility standards for your presentation and complete them to the best of your ability. At a minimum, you should expect guidance about:
- Image descriptions and alt text
- Screen-reader-friendly supplemental materials
- List of terms
- Closed captioning and/or transcripts
Finally, our access directory is a great resource with various guidelines, tools, and tips that you can use when preparing your presentation.
The AAA’s Accessibility & Meetings Manager is happy to talk with you about accessibility more broadly, or specifically your access needs or accommodation request. Please complete the following form, and they will get back to you as soon as possible.
Feel welcome to alternatively call or text the access number at (703) 239-4499.
