Except for one session all our online recordings are captioned. "Quick Start to Captioning" - the one session without captioning due to technical issues at the time of the recording (yes, the universe has a sense of irony), will be replaced with a captioned version shortly.

Screenreader Access

We have been disappointed with the screenreader and keyboard accessibility of Adobe Connect for the playback of conference video-recordings. Although it is possible to access the video-player interface with the keyboard, the process is cumbersome and difficult. We are considering whether to move to a different interface. Until that time please select the following link to view tips for accessing the Connect interface with a screenreader. Our apologies for any inconvenience.

You may view the videos included in your purchased track as many times as you wish. You cannot share your login or account information with others.
