A11yTalks GAAD with Sheri Byrne-Haber: Improving Accessibility through Leveraging Large Language Models (LLMs)

To celebrate GAAD, A11yTalks is hosting a live virtual talk with Sheri Byrne-Haber. Sheri will talk about leveraging Large Language Models (LLMs) to automate accessibility tasks represents a transformative advancement in digital inclusion efforts. These powerful models can replace manual accessibility work by generating image descriptions, providing real-time closed captions, and seamlessly translating content into multiple languages. LLMs can convert complicated documents and interfaces into plain language and improve consistency between products. All of these reduce the burden on content creators, designers, developers, accessibility, and quality assurance teams. As LLM use evolves, it holds the promise of significantly enhancing accessibility and making digital content more inclusive for individuals with diverse assistive technology needs.
