Accessibility Standards

Overview

The Vantage Point staff team strives to provide experiences and resources which are available and accessible to every individual interested in using our services. We are constantly updating our knowledge of accessibility tools and techniques in regard to the programs we use, and evaluating opportunities for improvement in both virtual and physical settings. Please keep reading to see our current accessibility standards and resources and reach out if you have any requests or suggestions to make your experience with us even better!

Virtual Accessibility

Live Transcription Through Zoom

Vantage Point uses Zoom’s live transcription feature for virtual labs and workshops. If not enabled automatically, participants can request to have live transcription enabled during the session.

Live transcription is currently not supported in breakout rooms.

For more information on built-in Zoom accessibility features, please visit: zoom.us/accessibility

Accessible PDF Handouts

We strive to make all PDF handouts, including fillable workbooks and slide decks, accessible by ensuring adequate colour contrast, font size, screen reader compatibility, and alt text descriptions are considered for all documents.

All materials are tested for accessibility, though we recognize the limitations in our staff knowledge and equipment and are committed to furthering these efforts.

If there are additional ways we can support your participation or increase accessibility please contact Samantha Kannegieter at skannegieter@thevantagepoint.ca.
