Help Celebrate the Tenth Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD)!
The purpose of GAAD is to get everyone talking, thinking and learning about digital access and inclusion, and the more than One Billion people with disabilities/impairments.
What is Digital Accessibility?
Every user deserves a first-rate digital experience on the web.
Someone with a disability must be able to experience web-based services, content and other digital products with the same successful outcome as those without disabilities.
This awareness and commitment to inclusion is the goal of Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD), a global event that shines a light on digital access and inclusion for people with disabilities.
