Slides from Global Accessibility Awareness Day 2015
The Paciello Group is holding a full day of free webinars on Global Accessibility Awareness Day. That’s 24 straight hours of talks, which started at midnight (GMT) on Wednesday, May 20 through through midnight (still GMT) on Thursday, May 21. I was fortunate enough to participate as a speaker and had the third slot in the queue.
As promised, I posted my slides. All the links I referenced are embedded within.
I’m pleased to see there was tweet activity during (and about) my talk. I’ve captured many of them below.
In his Selfish Accessibility talk @aardrian is giving us figures about disability in the US It's just impressive #a11y #ID24— Arthur Rigaud (@arigaud_ca) May 21, 2015

If you just think to all that users with disabilities in terms of market share, you just can't say "I don't care" (1/2) #ID24 #a11y— Arthur Rigaud (@arigaud_ca) May 21, 2015
Unless you want to kill your business (which can be an option) (2/2) #a11y #ID24 #SelfishAccessibility @aardrian— Arthur Rigaud (@arigaud_ca) May 21, 2015

.@aardrian on links: Don't "Click here" or "More info", don't include URLs or emoticons, just keep them simple & helpful #ID24 #GAAD— Léonie Watson (@LeonieWatson) May 21, 2015
"Use the right HTML element, don't throw ARIA roles on the wrong elements" @aardrian #ID24 #GAAD http://t.co/L2SKUfs1jW— The Paciello Group (@paciellogroup) May 21, 2015
