Global Accessibility Awareness Day 2014

  • This location is shown only to members

  • On 15 May, we invite you to participate in Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD). GAAD is a global community-driven effort whose goal is to dedicate one day to raising the profile of and introducing the topic of digital (web, software, mobile app/device etc.) accessibility and people with different disabilities to the broadest audience possible.

    The target audience of GAAD is the design, development, usability, and related communities who build, shape, fund and influence technology and its use. While people may be interested in the topic of making technology accessible and usable by persons with disabilities, the reality is that they often do not know how or where to start. Awareness comes first. Read the blog post by Joe Devon that inspired GAAD: CHALLENGE: Accessibility know-how needs to go mainstream with developers. NOW.

    About the Brisbane GAAD event

    The Brisbane Web Accessibility & Inclusive Design Meetup will, like many other Meetups in other capital cities, host a number of informative lightning talks. As an inclusive group, everybody is welcome to participate and to share something interesting to celebrate Global Accessibility Awareness Day. Talks will be 5 - 10 minutes in length and a computer with projector will be available for use.

    Everyone is invited, it will be a great opportunity to share knowledge with you peers, learn something new as well as be a part of this growing global event!

    Previous GAADS and resources

    Ideas from last year’s GAAD and resources are on the GAAD website.

    Show your support for the effort and stay up to date by liking and sharing the global event's Facebook page. Follow @gbla11yday on Twitter and tweet using the #GAAD hashtag.
