Thursday 15 May 2014 marks the third annual Global Accessibility Awareness Day (http://globalaccessibilityawarenessday.org/gaad.html) (GAAD). Global Accessibility Awareness Day is a 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.
Let's catch up for a drink and casual discussion of all things accessibility.
To get the discussion going, here are some useful GAAD resources:
• Inclusive Design 24 (#ID24) (http://inclusivedesign24.org/) - this is a 24 hour online community event featuring 24 one hour webinars on all things accessibility. This also features our very own Andrew Arch.
• Awareness Kit for Global Accessibility Awareness Day (http://www.a11ybytes.org/awarenesskit) - this are resources that will allow everyone involved in the production of the web, its content, services and applications; to begin a journey of exploration, discovery and understanding of web accessibility challenges
