Big plans for GAAD 2016
This Thursday – May 19, 2016 – is the fifth annual Global Accessibility Awareness Day, an event started by Joe Devon and Jennison Asuncion to help further the cause and bring awareness to digital accessibility. Every year the list of participants grows as more events are scheduled around the globe, and every year Deque is excited to find new ways to contribute.
