Cortico supports audio uploads for both virtual and in-person conversations, helping reduce participation barriers. In-person conversations can be scheduled in locations that can accommodate access for everyone, such as public libraries and private homes. At this time, in-person conversations can be conducted using any audio recording device, including a smartphone or other handheld recorder. Hearth v2 is currently in development and is not yet available for public use. Please reach out to email@example.com if you have questions regarding accessibility.
If you encounter a person who wishes to participate, but is unable to speak, please encourage them to participate with a surrogate who can speak on their behalf. If possible, have them write (or type) out their thoughts and have their surrogate read them aloud for the group.
