Dyslexia Box Launch YouTube Channel 0

 

Over the past few months we've held a number of webinars in partnership with our friends over at the Dyslexia Show. We were blown away by the sheer number of people attending, with most of the webinars having around 500 attendees.

 

This got us thinking that this was the perfect time for us to launch a YouTube channel so that we could put all of content up on a platform that was both free and easy to access.

 

The Dyslexia Box YouTube channel was born...

 


 

What will you find on our channel?

 

Through our partnership with The Dyslexia Show we've already built up a number of great videos, covering a range of subjects, including:

  • Microsoft - Our Continued Story on Disability Inclusion, with Michael Vermeersch, Microsoft
  • Dyslexia, Tech & The World of Work, with Neil Milliken, Atos
  • Working from Home - Accessibility and Assistive Technology, with Arran Smith, The Dyslexia Show
  • Making the Most of Dragon Professional in the Workplace, with Darren Maundrell, ORdigiNAL

There are a number of other videos from Claro Software, Olympus, enei, Cambridgeshire Fire & Rescue and OrCam.

 

All of the webinars on our channel are CPD Accredited. Contact us if you would like to receive a CPD Accredited Certificate.
