Explore the New Virtual Frontier in Digital Accessibility
You’ve seen the commercials about Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality 
(VR/AR). It’s one of the ways that we know we’re living in the future. 
But VR/AR is not just about video games; it also has important uses in 
other fields, including healthcare and hospitality.

Jessie Haugh (Hall) and Beth Crutchfield of SSB BART Group (soon to be 
Level Access) will discuss this new technology and how it can be made 
accessible in our upcoming webinar: No VR goggles needed!
