Greetings from the Mayor's Office for Adult Literacy in Houston, TX 😎
We ask that attendees please stay muted and keep your cameras off if you are not speaking. Thank you!
That is a great idea! What a great way to safely share who they are.
@Penny, I agree. And if it is a remote class, breakout rooms can be used for the discussions about identity.
I can’t hear the speaker
We suggest everyone use headphones if possible. Also live transcript is enabled in your control bar. Let me know if you need assistance finding this. Thank you!
Student choice is a great strategy in the classroom. Thanks for sharing that, Kamala.
Facing History: https://www.facinghistory.org/holocaust-and-human-behavior/chapter-1/little-things-are-big
That’s incredible, Kamala! I imagine what an empowering experience it must be for learners to see their publications.
If you have any questions for Kamala or Cynthia, please add them to the chat.
Philip Anderson - FL
Your story is very inspiring, Kamala! Thank you!
Introduction to Racism in the U.S.: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1tVMkVNPyjR9Mrldx_UJmqTL9J2YNyH4fwGulQKBsz8k/edit#slide=id.gadd976123d_0_58
That is extremely important! We’ve had students struggle with that
For those who have Emergency Broadband already, the ACP may be much less difficult to get.

Great tip, Penny!!! Start from today :)
A SUPER helpful resource from NIMAS is their POUR framework: https://aem.cast.org/create/designing-accessibility-pour
There's a test! Pay attention!
Screenreader simulation; starts at 8 sec: https://youtu.be/C1HSIW9FCqU?t=8
MS “Accessibility fundamentals: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/learn/paths/accessibility-fundamentals/
Is there any program available that has a more "natural" reading style?
Tip - if you are designing somethin with Google and you add in media (image, infographic, etc) you right click on the media and add Alt Text.
Spechify is a paid program with more natural sounding voices
some are even read by celebrities!
In Google Docs, the “styles” are in a dropdown that says “Normal text” to the left of the font style dropdown menu.
Wakelet has an reader extension. I am not sure how accurate with the place holders

I love the Colour Contrast Analyser! Great tool!
Thank you @ebony
I just wanted to take a moment and say that I have had the privilege to meet amazing people coming in to different presentations. I see all of you throughout meetings and then, when I see your introductions, I'm aware of how far most of you all are. Thank you for your comradery, your willingness to share, and your investment to our Adult Education students! It warms my heart to know that such commitment can be found anywhere you go.
Whole other level of "equity".... thank you!
I also like Microsoft's "Immersive Reader" tool for OneNote and Word.
