Entrepreneurship and Accessibility by Shanisha Collins
HelloA11Y August meet 2020
Organisation : HelloA11Y
Topic Description : As it stands, entrepreneurs, specifically the ones who have built their businesses via social media, are not considering implementing A11y into their products and services because they feel as though they are not required to do so by law. These businesses are growing at an alarming rate and along with them are websites. This talk discusses about how entrepreneurs can be encouraged to implement the best accessibility practices for their websites and digital products.
