Let's start with the wonderful world wide physical and digital systems that champion those needing access to web content and physical locations.

 

Without proper design, an experience can quickly become confusing and dysfunctional. That's why coders, web designers, architects and CEOs need to prepare and implement the best standards.

laws and guidelines

Every country has different building accessibility resources. Thousands upon thousands of different suggestions and regulations. So how do businesses, nonprofits and governments know how to improve their spaces to enable others?

To find each country’s rules, w3.org has concise information including on The European Union Accessibility Act, Canadian Accessibility Act, Australian Disability Discrimination Act and Spain's extensive laws.

 

These guidelines are the key to innovating spaces for the better of everyone. Our favorite is the United Nations disability rights.

We don’t expect you to read every act and rule. For a quick reference the Job Accommodation Network has a great list of A to Z disabilities and accommodations.

Vision

“All of our bodies change over time. We all deserve dignity and access at every stage in our lives. Most people will need to seek accessibility solutions at some point, whether for a family member, a colleague, or for oneself. Disability is part of the human experience. We all need to engage in the work to make our world accessible to everyone. Inclusion is a choice.”

Excerpt from the book Haben: The Deafblind Woman Who Conquered Harvard Law by Haben Girma
