Global Accessibility Awareness Day 2013

On May 9, we invite you to participate in Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD). The purpose of the day is to get people talking, thinking and learning about digital (web, software, mobile, etc.) accessibility and users with different disabilities.

While the target audience of GAAD is primarily the design, development, usability and related communities, the event is open to anybody who may be interested in the topic of making technology accessible and usable by persons with disabilities.

We’ve got presentations from:

Dey Alexander – Making Accessibility Accessible
Kim Chatterjee
Adam Kendall & Chris McLay – Good design is accessible
iOS Accessibility Demo – Vision Australia

We’ve secured RMIT’s building 80 (The Swanston Academic Building) located at 445 Swanston Street as a venue, which not only looks cool but should also be sufficiently accessible.
