Modified on Thu, 25 May 2023 at 07:55 PM

Airmeet is a virtual event platform that aims to provide an inclusive and accessible experience for all its users, regardless of their abilities or disabilities. 

Here are some ways in which Airmeet ensures accessibility for its users:

  1. Captioning and transcription: Airmeet provides live closed captioning and automatic transcription services for all its events. This enables deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals to follow along with the event and also helps non-native speakers understand the content more easily.

  2. Screen reader support: Currently, the Airmeet platform supports native screen readers - Voice Over (MacOS) and Narrator (Windows). This allows visually impaired individuals to access the platform and participate in events.

  3. Keyboard navigation: Airmeet can be fully navigated using a keyboard, which makes it accessible for individuals who are unable to use a mouse or trackpad.

Overall, Airmeet is committed to ensuring that its platform is accessible for all users, and is constantly working to improve its accessibility features.
