---------------------

1  Free Clinic:Online Comparison of Creating Different Types of Streaming
Multimediaa,
An EASI, Live, Voice Chat Web Conference Jan. 20 2005 1 PM Eastern
Multimedia is a powerful tool because it combines both informational
content with emotional and psychological motivation. Because it uses
multiple sensory
communication modes, it also has the potential to simultaneously reach
people with various sensory disabilities. Auditory modes communicate well
with those
who are blind or have limited vision. Images and other visuals are well
suited to those who are deaf or hard-of-hearing. This free, online
presentation
will introduce participants to several different easy-to-use authoring
tools and creation methods that facilitate the creation of accessible
multimedia.
These include captioned, audio described video, narrated PowerPoint, High
Caption, Caption Keeper, MAGPie, eTEACH, SMIL and SAMI..
The presentation is aimed at 3 different audiences:
List of 3 items
1.      administrators and directors who need to understand accessible
multimedia to supervise others who will actually create it;
2.      multimedia designers who need to know about accessibility but who do
well studying advanced technical material and who can master these tools
independently;
3.      Designers of multimedia who want hands-on training and human support to
guide them through learning the use of these authoring systems.
list end
This third group can use this introductory presentation to evaluate whether
the follow-up EASI 4-part tuition-based workshop on accessible multimedia will
benefit them.

2  Hands-on Accessible Multimedia Design: a 4-part Tuition-bearing Workshop
Starting February 12, EASI will provide a special workshop which will

replay the recorded presentation and practice each lesson. Anyone having
difficulties can meet the instructor online, and the teacher can actually

encountered. These will be live, online voice chat presentations: February
