Today is the eighth annual Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD).
The aim of GAAD is to get everyone talking, thinking and learning about digital accessibility and inclusion and people with different disabilities.
A growing number of people want to learn how to make technology accessible and usable for people with disabilities, but they are often unsure of where to start.
That’s why GAAD aims to raise awareness about accessibility, particularly amongst people in the fields of digital design, development, usability, user experience and related areas.
Recite Me Founder and CEO Ross Linnett said: “The whole team at Recite Me have a passion for digital accessibility.
“Around one in every five people in the UK has a disability and they can often face barriers like inaccessible websites that prevent them taking an active part in life.
“So we are very proud to support GAAD 2019 and hope that lots of people take this chance to learn more about digital accessibility.”
Recite Me helps organisations globally be accessible
Being web based, Recite Me can be introduced to any organisation in any country. We pride ourselves for being a globally accessible company and giving other organisations the same opportunity to become accessible with our accessibility toolbar widget.
We thought we’d share some of our UK and International clients on GAAD to promote them as being truly globally accessible.
