You want to hear concerns and ideas from many people. In response, you’re having a meeting or discussion. Or else, you are writing documents to share information and invite feedback. But, are your meetings and documents accessible for everyone? In other words, is it accessible for people with disabilities, elderly people, parents and carers, people who use different languages, and everyone else? This manual can help you think about accessibility for many different people. Further, it explains different ways to accommodate everyone’s needs.

This manual talks about deaf and hard of hearing people. For example, it explains how to ensure that people who lip read are able to see your face clearly. It also explains how to work with sign language interpreters. Furthermore, it briefly mentions deafblind people. The manual provides a lot of detailed information on accessibility for everyone. However, it is still always helpful to talk with local organizations led by deaf people, or by people with disabilities, for more ideas. The MNIDC website has guidance on finding local deaf organizations, and also guidance on finding deafblind organizations.
