Today is Global Accessibility Awareness Day

Global Accessibility Awareness Day 21 May 2020
Thursday, May 21, 2020, marks the ninth Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD). The purpose of GAAD is to get everyone talking, thinking and learning about digital access/inclusion and people with different disabilities.

What is Digital Accessibility?

"Every user deserves a first-rate digital experience on the web. Someone with a disability must be able to experience web-based services, content and other digital products with the same successful outcome as those without disabilities. This awareness and commitment to inclusion is the goal of Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD), a global event that shines a light on digital access and inclusion for people with disabilities."

Read on down the GAAD home page to find out more about the state of accessible technology.

There's also a fantastic page of recommended accessibility features, technology, tools, and learning resources.
