Welcome to the Composing Access Project, co-sponsored by the Committee on Disability Issues in College Composition (CDICC) and the Computers & Composition Digital Press (CCDP). This site began as a one-page handout titled “How to Make Your Presentation More Accessible.” We are now in the process of reimagining that one-sheet document as a multi-modal, multi-authored website.
The documents and videos on this site, authored by CCCC members, give various ideas for ways to enhance accessibility at conferences. No single person or artifact can offer definitive advice; each one is, to misquote philosopher Thomas Nagel, a “view from somewhere.” We encourage you to shop around, pick up ideas as you like, and hopefully try something new.
If you are visiting this site prior to attending the 2015 CCCC Convention in Tampa, FL, please download the incredible, detailed, and rich Accessibility Guide created by Cagle Lauren and Ellie Browning and available here: http://www.ncte.org/library/NCTEFiles/Groups/CCCC/Convention/2015/Accessibility-Guide.pdf.
We also encourage you to add to this site with documents, videos, images, or other artifacts of your own. If you’re interested in contributing to the Composing Access Project, please contact Margaret Price (firstname.lastname@example.org).
