Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD) represents a worldwide effort to raise the profile of digital accessibility for people of all abilities. Anyone anywhere should be able to connect to the web, use the software, download mobile apps, etc. But some designers, developers, and information technology types are unaware of what can be done to make technology accessible and inclusive to users with disabilities. GAAD’s mission is to broaden technological boundaries.
To mark the day, a number of free, in-person public events are being held around the world; cities and towns. View the in-person events posted on the GAAD website.
