Have you noticed more companies are preaching their support for accessibility? We now even have a day set aside for the recognition of accessibility on a global scale, but outside of the Microsofts and Apples and Googles of the world, what is the rest of the industry doing to put their rhetoric to the test?
It used to be that companies could claim ignorance about what it took to make accessibility a priority. They didn’t have the staff or the resources or the knowhow to make the products inclusive of blind and visually impaired customers. Then diversity, equity, and inclusion crashed into the public consciousness, and all of a sudden everyone was rushing to find ways to make themselves out to be sensitive to the needs of marginalized communities.
