Virtual Meetings – Réunions Virtuelles

May Month 2020 – Making Virtual Meetings More Accessible

This year for May month the Canadian Academy of Audiology is highlighting the top 10 ways to make virtual meetings accessible to those with hearing loss.

As the world is shifting towards a more virtual workforce, it is important to be aware that virtual meetings can present additional listening demands and challenges. This is especially true for people living with hearing loss. Did you know that at least one in five people attending your next meeting have some degree of hearing loss? Understanding potential listening barriers and identifying how to effectively maximize communication is the key to holding a successful virtual meeting.

CAA has created an article on top ways to improve hearing access in virtual meetings, a poster that can be printed out and an animated video all of which you can use and share.
