Learn more about the included accessibility resources and how Eventive meets WCAG standards.

There have been numerous audits performed by third parties in which no critical errors in Eventive’s interface were found, with an overall positive review by blind and low vision users of assistive technology. Our platform is widely useable, and we welcome feedback from organizers and audiences to ensure that Eventive continues to be as accessible as possible.

Audio Description Tracks

You can upload audio description tracks to all ingested virtual content - at no extra cost. If a film has an audio description track, you must upload it at the same time as the film. Learn more about audio specifications.

Closed Captions

Uploading closed captions is easy and free! We highly recommend uploading caption files for all of your content to make your screenings as accessible as possible. Upload captions at any time before your event. Both .SRT and .VTT files are accepted. Learn more here.

Live Captions

Automatic live captions are included at no extra cost on Premium Livestreams and cost just 3¢ per minute on Basic Livestreams. To enable automatic closed captions on a Basic Livestream, go to your Livestreaming Hub and select the Real-Time Automatic Captions checkbox.

Fullscreen Player with Keyboard Shortcuts

The Eventive video player displays in full screen by default and includes keyboard shortcuts to control play/pause, volume control, and scrubbing.

Seat Maps

Easily create custom seat maps for your in-person event, which can be used to mark accessibility and companion seating, accessibility entrances, sight lines, and more.

IN DEVELOPMENT at Eventive

Our developers are working towards building a dashboard feature that will make it easier to add Alt Text to images without having to insert code using the raw editor.

Prior to the launch of this new feature, you can still add Alt Text to your images using the Raw Editor.

We welcome feedback and suggestions on how to improve our platform for everyone!

You can submit feature requests on our Feature Request Board. You can send general feedback via the message widget or email us at team@eventive.org.


WCAG Standards

Eventive was independently audited and meets the following Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0:

1.1.1 Non-text Content

Frames are appropriately titled.

A text or audio description is provided for non-live, web-based video-only (e.g., video that has no audio track).

1.2.2 Captions (Prerecorded)

Synchronized captions are provided for non-live, web-based video (YouTube videos, etc.)

1.2.3 Audio Description or Media Alternative (Prerecorded)

A descriptive text transcript or audio description audio track is provided for non-live, web-based video.

1.2.5 Audio Description (Prerecorded)

Audio descriptions are provided for all video content. NOTE: Only required if the video conveys content visually that is not available in the default audio track.

1.3.3 Sensory Characteristics

Instructions do not rely upon shape, size, or visual location (e.g., "Click the square icon to continue" or "Instructions are in the right-hand column").

Instructions do not rely upon sound (e.g., "A beeping sound indicates you may continue.").

1.4.1 Use of Color

Color is not used as the sole method of conveying content or distinguishing visual elements.

Color alone is not used to distinguish links from surrounding text unless the luminance contrast between the link and the surrounding text is at least 3:1 and an additional differentiation (e.g., it becomes underlined) is provided when the link is hovered over or receives focus.

1.4.2 Audio Control

A mechanism is provided to stop, pause, mute, or adjust volume for audio that automatically plays on a page for more than 3 seconds.

Large text (over 18 point or 14 point bold) has a contrast ratio of at least 3:1.

2.1.1 Keyboard

All page functionality is available using the keyboard, unless the functionality cannot be accomplished in any known way using a keyboard (e.g., free hand drawing).

Page-specified shortcut keys and access keys (accesskey attribute should typically be avoided) do not conflict with existing browser and screen reader shortcuts.

2.3.1 Three Flashes or Below Threshold

No page content flashes more than 3 times per second unless that flashing content is sufficiently small and the flashes are of low contrast and do not contain too much red. (See general flash and red flash thresholds.)

2.4.2 Page Titled

The web page has a descriptive and informative page title.

2.4.5 Multiple Ways

Multiple ways are available to find other web pages on the site — at least two of: a list of related pages, table of contents, site map, site search, or list of all available web pages.

3.2.1 On Focus

When a page element receives focus, it does not result in a substantial change to the page, the spawning of a pop-up window, an additional change of keyboard focus, or any other change that could confuse or disorient the user.

3.2.4 Consistent Identification

Elements that have the same functionality across multiple web pages are consistently identified. For example, a search box at the top of the site should always be labeled the same way.

Note: Updates to adhere to WCAG 2.1 standards are in active development.
