Accessible Materials and Services

Services Available:

  • The dedicated Accessibility Desk, located in the main lobby of the conference level close to the main registration desk, offers several services, including sighted conference guiding by volunteers and American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation during registration, breaks and Showcase Area visits. Volunteers and ASL interpreters will be identified by T-shirts and badges
  • The Conference Agenda and Showcase Guide in accessible format will be provided on flash drives to all participants at the main registration desk. Braille conference programs, if requested in advance, will be available at credential pick-up at the Accessibility Desk
  • American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation will be provided in all plenary and breakout sessions
  • Real Time Captioning (CART) will be available in all sessions on screen and with URL for mobile or personal computer viewing.
  • Assisted listening devices will be available in each conference room
  • The hotel has a designated service animal relief area
  • Indoor Navigation System: Thanks to a collaboration between RightHear and the M-Enabling Summit, attendees of the 2018 Summit who are blind or visually impaired will be able to get around and acquire orientation independently during the conference – just like everyone else, using I-Beacon Technology.  The orientation system will allow its users to get notifications about where they are, what is there, and what is around them as they travel throughout the Summit.  A free app available on both iPhone and Android, it provides orientation support once users are inside of venues equipped with the RightHear technology. The app alerts users whenever they are near an Accessible Zone and supports orientation once users are inside. RightHear users also hear helpful information about their surroundings. Because RightHear utilizes Bluetooth technology, it works without an Internet connection.
