Apologies if you see this announcement more than once.

The WGBH National Center for Accessible Media is offering additional dates
for our web-based training on "Effective Practices for Description of
Science Content Within Digital Talking Books." We are offering free online

that we will be offering training in person at the CSUN Conference on March
26th for those attending the conference.

The guidelines cover description of a variety of information types,
including bar charts, line graphs, Venn diagrams, tables, pie charts, flow
charts and complex diagrams and illustrations. A resource section is also
included, providing links to many organizations, tools and standards which
all contribute to generating more accessible STEM materials. The guidelines
are available online at:
