Are You Accessible?
Accessibility to people with disabilities is an important issue in web and software development, and the folks at Knowbility, Inc. would like your input about how to better educate people about accessible technology.
Knowbility is a non-profit organization whose mission is to support the independence of children and adults with disabilities by promoting the use and improving the availability of accessible information technology. They do this through education and outreach, and the more information they have from those of us working in the IT industry, the better they are able to continue their mission.
So if you have a few minutes, please share your feedback via their online survey at http://www.surveymonkey.com/RU_accessible
Knowbility, a nonprofit advocate, trainer and consultant since 1999 for technology access for people with disabilities, and MicroAssist Inc, a leading software training center since 1988, are seeking input on questions of IT accessibility. Our industry has seen legal mandates for accessibility expanding every year; technical standards from the W3C are in place and updated as technology evolves; and yet access to technology remains unequal. We have had many inquiries about why the state of accessibility remains so dismal. We welcome your input and if we have left something out, please send email to knowbility at knowbility dot org.
P.S. You can enter to win two Southwest Airlines tickets by answering the survey.
