Web Access Matters - Web Accessibility in a Nutshell

On the third Thursday of May, Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD), 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 — take an hour out of your day to participate in GAAD: experience first-hand the impact of digital accessibility (or lack thereof).
