Access Rider - Claye Bowler 

 

Online meeting accessibility needs

  • Reminders a week and the day before that the meeting is taking place if no other emails are being sent about the meeting

  • Agenda or rough layout of the meeting to be sent out before hand, ideally with timings

  • 10 min breaks at least every hour, if all day session, an hour break for lunch

  • Facilitated discussion - eg. raise hands to talk, use of break out rooms

  • All participants to have pronouns in their name on zoom

  • Live captioning for zoom calls bigger than 4 people - eg Otter 

 

In real life accessibility

  • Reminders a week and the day before that the meeting is taking place if no other emails are being sent about the meeting

  • Agenda or rough layout of the meeting to be sent out before hand, ideally with timings

  • 10 min breaks at least every hour, if all day session, an hour break for lunch

  • Facilitated discussion - eg. raise hands to talk

  • Pronouns announced at the beginning of the meeting/name tags

  • I would appreciate if meetings could be minuted in a way that I could see, eg. shared google doc or written on flip chart paper on the walls.

  • Close proximity to an accessible toilet or gender neutral toilet with sink and bins inside cubicle

    • Ability to leave meetings to go to the toilet easily and without interrupting meetings - eg, space around the table to leave.

  • If food/drink is provided I cannot eat/drink - caffeine, alcohol, tomatoes, citrus fruits (even in water jugs), garlic, greasy foods. I would like to be consulted on any food provided/venues we go to for food that is beyond tea and biscuits

  • Please avoid meetings in fully white rooms if possible
