Global Accessibility Awareness Day 2022

published in McAfee & Taft EmployerLINC | May 19, 2022

Thursday, May 19, 2022, marks the 11th Annual Global Accessibility Awareness Day. The day aims to celebrate existing digital accessibility efforts and bring awareness to the difficulties individuals with disabilities face daily when using the internet and digital devices. Users are encouraged to spend an hour using a screen-reader or navigating without a mouse to experience firsthand the impact of digital accessibility, or lack thereof.

Today is a good reminder for private companies of the application of the Americans with Disabilities Act on website accessibility, a topic that McAfee & Taft has covered frequently. For more information, check out these articles:
