Accessing Social Media

*NACCHO Health and Disability Newsletter January/February 2013*

The Emergency 2.0 Wiki Accessibility Toolkit was developed to empower
people with disabilities to use social media for disaster preparedness,
response and recovery. The toolkit was developed in response to the fact
that not all people with a disability are able to access lifesaving
messages delivered through social media due to the accessibility challenges
that the tools currently pose. The online toolkit provides tips, resources
and apps to assist people with a disability to overcome accessibility
challenges of social media. The kit also includes practical guidelines to
assist the emergency sector, government, community, media and business to
make social media messages more accessible.
