Global Accessibility Awareness Day – Let’s Do it!

May 19, 2016 Comments Off on Global Accessibility Awareness Day – Let’s Do it!

I’m sitting in Logan Airport in Boston today and it looks like I have 45 minutes (only! darn) of free wireless connection here in terminal C. Time to type quickly – and a short post about the importance of this day – May 19th – #GAAD

It’s the 5th year of raising awareness about how vital – we say life-saving too – is an accessible web – the world wide web – for all of us.

So much of life is “e-” now – e-learning, communications, shopping banking and importantly, human relationships! For us also, for the CCAC, it’s vital for captioning advocacy, much needed.

A short video we like a lot about this GAAD stuff is here:

And more information here: https://www.w3.org/WAI/perspectives/captions.html

And here: http://www.globalaccessibilityawarenessday.org/

Coincidentally for the CCAC – big news – and also with a salute for this special day, we are in the process of changing our webpages, so chock full of good information – to make them accessible – bear with us as it’s the first time we are using a consultant to help with this. Soon!
