On May 18th, the world will again observe Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD). The brainchild of a visionary web developer who realized the transformative power of web accessibility, this significant annual event aims to drive conversations and foster awareness around accessibility.
At its core, GAAD is about making technology accessible to everyone, regardless of their abilities. As a business, the best way to drive the conversation forward is by prioritizing accessibility – implementing features like alt-text descriptions for images, video captions, and easy-to-navigate interfaces for users with assistive technology. And, by promoting GAAD through social networks, we can help encourage conversations about accessibility within the business community.
