As part of Global accessibility awareness day on May 9th there are couple of events that are taking place in India, I want to draw the attention to these events so that product designers, web designers, marketers, developers etc can understand the pain points and create inclusive applications/products.
If you are some one who don’t know what is accessibility or thinking to venture into the field of accessibility these events will help you gain knowledge and help you connect with accessibility practitioners.
