We are committed to ensuring that your virtual events and other Brazen features are accessible to as many people as possible, including those who are hard of hearing or have visual impairment.
Chat in Brazen
Brazen chats can be fully conducted as text-only chats inside:
- A Text Chat booth
- A Text, Video & Audio booth
- An Open Networking Text Chat booth
- An Open Networking with Text, Video & Audio Chat booth
- Scheduled Chat
- QuickChat within the BrazenBot plugin or job and custom landing pages
If a representative requests a video and/or audio chat with an attendee, the attendee can decline the invitation and continue their chat using text.
Please note that Group Video booths do not support text-based chat at this time.
BrazenLive Video Broadcasts
While Brazen does not generate captions during a BrazenLive Broadcast, you can leverage features within Microsoft Powerpoint or Google Slides to add real-time closed captions to your presentation, or encourage your viewers to use Google Chrome's Live Caption tool. Read this article to learn more about captioning options.
Additionally, all BrazenLive Video Broadcasts feature a text-based discussion feed.
Event Lobby & BrazenBot
The Event Lobby navigation menu background color, as well as the accent color used for buttons, radio buttons, and checkboxes, are fully customizable by Account Administrators to maximize contrast in order to accommodate individuals with color vision deficiency.
The Career Site and Job Req BrazenBot plugin background and accent colors are also customizable.
Screen Readers & Keyboard Navigation
Brazen supports the use of both screen readers (specifically JAWS) and keyboard navigation for many of our features.
There are many possible combinations of operating systems, browsers, and screen readers that affect accessibility performance, so we have strived to accommodate the most common configurations.
Screen readers and keyboard navigation are supported for the following core features:
- Event Landing Screens
- Reset Password Sequence
- Registration and Registration Confirmation
- Welcome Slides
- Event Lobby
- One-on-one Chat
- Reading/writing of emojis in chat messages
- Chat Rating
- Error Screens
- User Home
The following features are currently not supported for screen readers or keyboard navigation:
- Brazen Control Center
- Edit Account
- Change Password
- Identify Peer Group
- Away Status
- Simultaneous Chats
- Video/Audio Chat
- Emoji Picker
- Chat History
- Broadcast Messages
- Representative Experience
- Mobile Experience
- Career Site and Job Req BrazenBot plugins
Please note that dropdown, or “Select List” fields are inherently not fully keyboard accessible. We recommend you replace them with checkbox fields for event registration forms where you expect attendees to require keyboard navigation.
