From Exclusion to Revolution: DigitalA11Y’s Journey to an Inclusive Digital World
A spark ignited by empathy, a mission fueled by resilience – this is the story of DigitalA11Y. It’s not just a company, it’s a movement, a bridge paving the way for a digital landscape where everyone belongs.
Our roots lie in 2006, when Raghavendra Satish Peri, a web designer with low vision, faced the harsh reality of job discrimination. Undeterred, he built his own business, brick by brick. Then came a defining moment – a client from the UK, a completed website, and a question that changed everything: “Is it accessible?”
Accessibility – a word unknown to Raghavendra then. Yet, with unwavering curiosity and a burning desire to overcome, he embarked on a journey of discovery. He devoured online resources, unlocking the secrets of digital inclusion, and crafted a website that transcended physical limitations. This wasn’t just a project delivered; it was a seed planted, a spark ignited.
Years later, at IBM, Raghavendra found himself at the forefront of building an accessibility Center of Excellence. His personal experiences fueled his passion, and he guided Fortune 500 giants and global clients alike towards compliance and a more inclusive world. But the spark craved an inferno. Raghavendra envisioned a community, a platform where knowledge flowed freely, and accessibility became not just a technical niche, but a cornerstone of every digital experience. Thus, DigitalA11Y was born.
DigitalA11Y started as a blog, a virtual campfire where Raghavendra shared his hard-won wisdom. It resonated, growing organically as his corporate career faded into the background. His mission became his compass, etched in every line of code, every consultation, every workshop.
Today, DigitalA11Y stands tall, a testament to the power of resilience and empathy. We’re more than a consultancy; we’re a bridge, connecting businesses with the vast potential of an inclusive digital landscape. We’re a catalyst, transforming websites into welcoming spaces, shattering barriers, and empowering millions.
