Celebrating Global Accessibility Awareness Day with Lex Gillette

Today is the third Thursday of May, which means it’s Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD). On this day, accessibility advocates from around the world come together to promote digital accessibility and inclusion for people with disabilities. This year, we’ve partnered with U.S. Paralympian, Lex Gillette to show our shared commitment to digital accessibility.

Lex Gillette: Athlete & Advocate

Throughout the years, we have worked with many accessibility advocates and we’re proud to continue that tradition with Lex. Not only is Lex the best totally blind long and triple jumper in the history of the U.S. Paralympic movement, but he is also an accessibility advocate who strongly believes in the power for creating meaningful change for people with disabilities. Check out Lex’s TEDx talk to hear his story and be inspired.

GAAD 2020 Initiative

To celebrate GAAD 2020, we’ve created an interactive quiz that brings awareness to digital accessibility by demonstrating the roadblocks that users who are blind or have low vision experience when using websites that are inaccessible. Take our quiz to learn more.
