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.

We currently have two types of webinar:

  • Dealing with Disability in the Workplace - helping employers and employees
  • Digital Accessibility - helping business managers, web developers and others 

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.
