Podcast: Teams and Zoom goes head-to-head

Accessible technology in the workplace has come a long way over the last few years allowing blind and partially sighted employees to perform roles as well as their fully sighted counterparts. In this video, the third of our #BlindAndAble videos, Alex Henderson, TPT's Communications Intern, shares how he manages TPT’s social media vehicles using a mix of magnification and screen reading software. Thanks to Nathan Churchill of Higher Aspect Media who filmed and produced these videos.

The panel will explore and discuss how each platform works, how accessible they are for blind and partially sighted people and provide some top tips.

Teams and Zoom goes head-to- head! Which platform will come out on top?
