Increase the accessibility of your meetings by managing your physical space:

  • Arrange tables and furniture such that participants can navigate the room comfortably
  • Allocate space and positioning for sign language interpreters, CART transcriptionists, and other companions
  • Understand lighting and environmental controls to provide accommodating environment for all users

  • Consider assigning a meeting concierge to assist with user issues such as:
    • Microphone
    • Lighting
    • CART/ASL placement
    • Environment controls
