Accessing the digital world

Posted: October 8, 2020 in Uncategorized

There’s a growing demand for businesses to make themselves more accessible by people with a disability. We’re probably a long way further on than we were just a few years ago, but there’s still a long way to go.

You’d think that technology would solve many problems, but my latest Inspire Newscast raises the point that people with disabilities aren’t always aware of what’s available to them, and the people who build websites, don’t always think about the needs of people with a disability.

Dr Scott Hollier’s lived experience with a disability has led him to investigate how to make the digital world more accessible to people with disabilities, to the point he co-founded an organisation he is now leading that is setting the standards for the future.

It was great talking about this with Scott and learning more about what it means to make the digital world more accessible to people with a disability. I’d encourage you to watch his story and share it on your socials.
