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!
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.

About the Speaker
Joshua Muheim : I’m a senior full stack web developer. Since 2014, I worked for «Access for all» (http://access-for-all.ch/), Swiss Foundation for the use of technology for the disabled, where I was part of an inclusive team. I had the opportunity to hands-on learn everything related to accessibility, while we helped to audit and optimise hundreds of websites and mobile apps. I was initiator of and main contributor to the «Accessibility Developer Guide» (https://www.accessibility-developer-guide.com/), a comprehensive introduction to accessibility, aimed at developers. I just started working for Nothing AG (http://nothing.ch/), a lively UX focused product design agency located in Berne, Switzerland. Aligned with Nothing’s company ethos, which is creating products that truly serve humanity, we want to push accessibility both within our organisation as well as inside the UX, design and development communities.
