Breaking Down Boxes for Accessibility
Last year, Domino’s Pizza appealed to the Supreme Court to hear the argument that their website and mobile application did not need to be accessible to users of screen-reading technology. This shut out more than 3 million users in the US alone. Some may think of accessibility as just a matter for a few individuals, but when we think outside boxes—or, better yet, break them down—we see not individuals, but a society full of people with different perspectives and abilities. With a wider worldview, we begin to understand and appreciate how we can improve the experience for everyone by embracing those differences. Come hear stories of people's lived experiences and see how universally applied accessibility empowers more than just individuals and creates a more vibrant culture.
