Global Accessibility Awareness Day 2017 – Let's raise awareness about accessibility
6th edition of Global Accessibility Awareness Day will be observed on 18th May, 2017. As always, this is one such event that success of the event does not get measured by it’s size or format but by impact that event could create. Thanks to Prakat Solutions Inc.,, here is a quick video of my opening remarks about Global Accessibility Awareness Day that I spoke last year.
Some of the topics that could touch upon to raise awareness about are:
- How to test for accessibility of a product? Read Part 1 of our series on How to test website for accessibility
- What’s in WCAG 2.1?
- What’s the state of Accessibility of Government porals? Read my post on Status of State Government Portals in India
- What can you do? Responsibility of different stake holders. Read my recent presentation on what corporate, education sector and Non-profits should do?
- Impact of Inclusive Design
