Accessibility

UVic Orientation is committed to making our events as accessible and barrier-free as possible. If you have any accessibility needs in order to participate in our events, please provide details when you register and/or contact us at orientation@uvic.ca.

Our events will be hosted virtually this year using Zoom and Microsoft Teams. You can find detailed information on navigating these platforms and their accessibility features at https://onlineacademiccommunity.uvic.ca/uviclte/. 

Our accessibility practices

  • Closed captioning: All of our events will include closed captioning
  • Schedule breaks: Breaks are scheduled frequently in order for people to recharge. A more detailed schedule of event days will be available in the weeks before our events. 
  • Screen-reader compatible platforms: All live workshops and info sessions will be delivered in screen-reader compatible platforms. See below for information on receiving electronic and screen-reader compatible copies of workshop slides.
  • Recorded sessions and transcripts: All sessions will be recorded and available for later viewing on our website. When the recordings are posted, there will be corresponding transcripts available for each session.

Other ways we can help

  • Print materials: Electronic copies of workshop presentations are available in formatted or plain-text versions. Please indicate if you would like to receive copies in your registration form.
  • Campus tours: If you are living in Victoria or in residence and would like an in-person tour of the campus, please indicate in your registration form or contact us at orientation@uvic.ca.
