Global Accessibility Awareness - Supporting 1 billion
Everyone has the right to understand and be understood. By 2030, we want to have advanced the literacy and understanding of one billion people around the world. At Texthelp, we see a world where accessibility doesn’t have to get in the way of everybody leading more satisfying, productive lives and a world where nobody’s held back by age, language, difference or disability.
This podcast episode explores the challenges faced by the 1 billion individuals with disabilities worldwide and explore Texthelp's role in supporting accessibility through top-down leadership.
Join host Rachel Kruzel, RESNA Certified Assistive Technology Professional (ATP) and Higher Ed Specialist at Texthelp with special guest Mark McCusker, former CEO of Texthelp and Board Member of G3ICT, as they discuss accessibility and inclusivity.
Learn more about the common barriers learners and organizations face and effective strategies for implementing accessibility initiatives.
Together, we can create a more inclusive world for everyone.
