Digital accessibility during COVID-19
"It's never been more important to think about digital accessibility" is something that's been said in multiple videos and articles this year. Staying at home during a pandemic means we need to do a lot via websites and apps. How does this work for people?
Smashing Magazine has written about some key takeaways from people working with accessibility in different organizations. It's good to get these different perspectives but the last heading in the article, "Covid: More Opportunity Than Challenge", is kind of awful if read without context. After all, disabled people are multiple times more likely to die from this virus. A little bit more on this, with a focus on the UK, can be read in this article from the BBC.
