Today, May 9, 2013, is the second year for Global Accessibility Awareness Day! This day is meant to "get people talking, thinking and learning about digital (web, software, mobile, etc.) accessibility and users with different disabilities"
December 3 is the International Day of Persons with Disabilities. On this December 3, the global celebration has an appropriate theme, "Together for a better world for all: Including persons with disabilities in development". Some people are unaware of a global mandate to achieve accessibility, and may feel isolated when their specific jurisdiction introduces new laws benefitting people with disabilities. Understanding we are all moving in the same direction, albeit using varying methods and timelines, is important when making decisions in your organization.
