Enhance The UK’s CEO Jennie Williams offers practical tips and advice on video conferencing with deaf colleagues. You may be new to remote working and feeling a little anxious about keeping employees up to speed as COVID19 impacts day to day life. Or perhaps you’re used to video conferencing and unaware of the accessibility challenges it poses for staff with hearing impairments. Watch the video above for Jennie’s excellent tips for video conferencing with deaf colleagues.
