Global Accessibility Awareness Day (May 19, 2016), was inspired by a blog post by Joe Devon where he called for increased awareness around website accessibility and compatibility. Being a software company, this cause is close to our hearts.
For most startups (we included) it’s an obvious first step to focus on the end game; to get your site and software up and running. Global Accessibility Awareness Day is about stepping back and taking steps to ensure that those platforms are as accessible as possible to as wide an audience as possible including disadvantaged users and disabled users.
Donesafe has put a great deal of effort into ensuring that it’s software is accessible to users with intellectual disabilities and users who come from a non-english speaking background. This is only one part of the puzzle and for many software companies (we included) more can be done to advance this cause.
So today on Global Accessibility Awareness Day, take a moment to spread the word and encourage thought leaders in the software development field to start thinking about accessibility in their projects.
