Welcome to the Composing Access Project, co-sponsored by the Committee on Disability Issues in College Composition (CDICC) and the Standing Group on Disability Studies, both part of the Conference on College Composition and Communication. This site began in 2008 as a one-page handout titled “How to Make Your Presentation More Accessible.” Over the years, that one-sheet document has been reimagined and rebuilt as a multi-modal, multi-authored website.

The documents and videos on this site give various ideas for ways to enhance accessibility at conferences. No single person or artifact can offer definitive advice; each one is, to misquote philosopher Thomas Nagel, a “view from somewhere.” Some videos were created years ago and indicate pre-pandemic practices, or simply reflect the time they were recorded. We encourage you to shop around, pick up ideas as you like, let go of what doesn’t seem applicable, and try something new.

We would love to add your ideas and resources to this site, including any suggestions you have about facilitating your own and others’ access–in all kinds of ways. We also want to hear from you regarding how you have made use of this site. In addition, we hope you will contribute ideas and material! To contact the site organizer, email Margaret Price.
