Global Accessibility Awareness Day

Thursday 16th of May marks Global Accessibility Awareness day and this year, we will be revamping our website to showcase accessibility. If you are a business owner or a website designer, we challenge you to do the same!

To fix usability and accessibility, we plan to:

  • Add alternative text to images so that their meaning is screen reader friendly

  • Provide labelling on buttons and form fields that require user input

  • Add captions to audio and video features

  • Check colour contrast and limit colour usage for identification of content

The purpose of GAAD is to get everyone talking, thinking and learning about digital access and inclusion for people with different disabilities. Join us on Thursday, May 16 2019 and mark the eighth Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD).
