Hey everyone! We’re back again with another Global Accessibility Day Event (GAAD) event. As before, registrations are free, questions are invited and you are too!

Who are we?

Did you know the websites, products, and apps you use everyday cannot be accessed by everyone? Like physical spaces, the digital spaces also pose obstacles for those with disabilities. Yet there are a few simple measures that platforms can take to promote a culture of accessibility, and inclusivity for audiences with all kinds of disabilities: visual, hearing, motor, and cognitive. After all, isn’t technology supposed to change the world?

helloA11Y is a community that anchors discussions on accessibility and inclusivity across the digital sphere. We hope to continue these conversations, and work towards spreading awareness, sharing resources, and creating inclusive digital spaces to provide an equitable learning platform for all.

Our Topics

  1. How does the awareness of assistive technologies by professors impact students with disabilities’ success at the college level?
    Humberto Hernandez

  2. How to create accessible JavaScript widgets with basic HTML components
    Joshua Muheim

  3. Urban Accessibility Challenges for Persons with Disabilities
