What really grinds my a11y gears!

Come join our solution-focused event for Global Accessibility Awareness Day to hear some friendly accessibility ranting from people with disabilities and folks in the field whose jobs include embedding accessibility into products, processes and teams.

We'll share some common issues around digital accessibility, chat about how these issues impact peoples' lives or work and, most importantly, check out some potential solutions from experts in the accessibility space.

The event will be live captioned, recorded and available via registration on the Auckland Digital Accessibility & Inclusive Design Meetup page.

The recording will also be posted on the Auckland Digital Acessibility and Inclusive Design YouTube channel.
