Global Accessibility Awareness Day – 18th of May

Do you know that today is Global Accessibility Awareness day, an annual event which began in 2015.  It promotes and highlights IT accessibility for disabled users.  Digital accessibility is about ensuring websites, applications, learning resources, social media postings and other digital products are accessible to disabled users.  Accessible sites and content typically provide a better user experience and in general improve the experience our students and staff have with our services.

As Global Accessibility Awareness day approached, we sent around a curated list of resources which provided ideas on how people across ISG and the University in general could get involved.  This blog post is to provide a permanent home for that list of resources.
