Digital accessibility – what it is and why it’s important. Most sites/apps are awful as far as accessibility goes. It’s not something that’s taught, & even when there is some awareness, it’s considered too hard and costly to implement. Ashleigh raises visibility about why it’s important from both social & business perspectives, and provides information & tools for people to take back to their own projects use.
