Many of us have started to attend more virtual meetings these days. Two recent posts surfaced to help you make them more inclusive: Ten things to improve conference call accessibility and How to make your next virtual meeting more accessible. The first post focuses on more general actions you can take while the second centers on the Zoom platform. Each provides helpful advice.
