Global Accessibility Awareness Day

May 15th is Global Accessibility Awareness Day!

Stemming from a seemingly innocuous blog post in 2011 by a Los Angeles based web developer, Global Accessibility Awareness Day is now an international event with efforts to draw attention to digital accessibility, or lack there of. Challenge yourself any time at a computer by changing your digital habits: go mouse-less for an hour and use only key strokes to navigate your favorite website, or try re-sizing the text on your browser to 200% and check for any losses in content or functionality. You can also learn more about joining an in-person international or local event.

And don't forget about resources and assistive technology offered through the Washtenaw Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped at AADL, and the large print books available for check-out in the catalog!
