Are you an entrepreneur? Have you ever wondered what accessibility means to your business? Have you ever asked ‘Is my business legally bound to be accessible?’ If so, are you still searching for the starting point and sustainable accessibility practices? Then we have the right session for you!
HelloA11Y is excited to present its next talk titled ‘Entrepreneurship and Accessibility’ which would take place on August 27, 2020 from 19:30 PM to 20:35 PM IST. Join us in this presentation to move your business a step forward in these difficult times!
I’d like to discuss how might we encourage entrepreneurs to implement accessibility best practices for their websites and digital products. As it stands, entrepreneurs, specifically the ones who have built their businesses via social media, are not considering implementing A11y into their products and services because they feel as though they are not required to do so by law. These businesses are growing at an alarming rate and along with them are websites. In my talk, I’d like discuss ways those in the A11y industry can assist these entrepreneurs so that we can help them understand the importance of A11y.
