Recently, three major podcast providers were sued for lack of accessibility, raising awareness for a much-needed discussion around making podcasts universally accessible.
Due to a low barrier to entry, minimal equipment needs, and growing interest in the medium, it’s no wonder why both businesses and individuals have started producing their own podcasts. However, podcasting in its simplest audio form is exclusionary to the more than 10 million Americans who are deaf or hard of hearing.
This webinar will be presented by Lainey Feingold, an internationally recognized disability rights lawyer and public speaker and pioneer of Structured Negotiation. Lainey is known for negotiating landmark accessibility agreements without lawsuits, many described in her book, Structured Negotiation, A Winning Alternative to Lawsuits. The second edition of Lainey’s book was published in October 2021.In this webinar, Lainey will take us through legal issues impacting podcasts, primarily in the United States. She will also share best practices for podcast accessibility and tips for staying ahead of the legal curve on this issue.
