Today marks the eighth Global Accessibility Awareness Day #GAAD.
The day aims to get everyone talking, thinking and learning about how to make digital technology accessible and inclusive for all people affected by different disabilities.
Having accessible technology on our websites, mobile phones and web services such as Twitter and Facebook is so important to ensure we can all communicate easily and effectively. Being unable to do this, can leave people feeling isolated.
