AbilityNet Webinars

Webinars are online events that are delivered through a website and are a great way of sharing expert information on a range of topics. You don't need a video camera or any special equipment - just connect through the internet, follow the presentations on your screen and use headphones or speakers to listen to what's happening. You can also ask questions.

Our webinars are useful for anyone interested in how to help disabled people at, work, at home, or in education. This includes disabled people, their colleagues, managers, friends, families, colleagues and other professionals who support them.

All webinars are free of charge. They are recorded onto video which are then posted onto YouTube and are captioned. 

Visit the Webinars Archive to view videos and slides from past events.

Computers, laptops, tablets and mobiles are evolving at an incredible pace, and no more so than when it comes to using your voice to interact with your computer. For some disabled people this is a huge step forward, for example anyone who struggles to use a mouse or keyboard because of difficulty using their hands or arms, or someone with dyslexia. This session will review some of the current technologies and the role that HR professionals can play in integrating them into the workplace.
