3 Things - Tuesday, April 26

Help celebrate Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD) on May 19! Here are three ways you and your organization can participate. (The following are taken directly from the GAAD website.) 

  1. Publish a blog post on or before Global Accessibility Awareness Day, on the 3rd Thursday of each May, including background on GAAD and your organization or company’s commitment to digital accessibility. 

  2. Run this WAVE – Web Accessibility Evaluation Tool on a page or pages you have developed and see how accessible these are to your visitors, including those with different disabilities. Take the results and implement the suggested changes. 

  3. If you are a web design, usability, web development, digital agency, digital accessibility or related firm, send an email to your clients on or before Global Accessibility Awareness Day, with a link to www.globalaccessibilityawarenessday.org, drawing attention to how your firm supports accessibility through services or education.
