Thursday, 21 May 2020 marks the ninth Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD).

The purpose of GAAD is to get everyone talking, thinking and learning about digital (e.g. web, software and mobile) access/inclusion and people with different disabilities.

This year it also coincides with Digital Access Consulting's 20th birthday and we have some fun and exciting things planned.

It's our 20th Anniversary and we're having a double celebration in conjunction with Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD).

Join the Digital Access Team and our special guest, Bruce Maguire, talking about the changes we've seen over the past 20 years, and our predictions for the future of Digital Accessibility.
