A world without barriers – global accessibility awareness day

By Methods20 May 20211 min read

Today, May 20th 2021, marks the 10th Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD). The purpose of GAAD is to get everyone talking, thinking, and learning about digital access and inclusion for the more than one billion people with disabilities/impairments.

To mark this event,  Methods  ‘Accessibility’ podcast explores the misconceptions surrounding accessibility; after all, we all want to complete a task without encountering a barrier in any form, and therefore accessibility issues impact everyone. The panel discuss how organisations can prioritise accessibility and provide practical examples.

Our 4 participants are made up of content designers, UX designers, developers and user researchers, and is hosted by Jadene Aderonmu, accessibility lead at Methods.
