<http://www.globalaccessibilityawarenessday.org/>Today *Thursday, May 19
2016* is the fifth *Global Accessibility Awareness Day
<http://www.globalaccessibilityawarenessday.org/>* (GAAD). Events are
happening all over the world including NYC. The purpose of GAAD is to get
people talking, thinking and learning about digital (web, software, mobile,
etc.) accessibility and users with different disabilities. The target
audience of GAAD is the design, development, usability, and related
communities who build, shape, fund and influence technology and its use.
While people may be interested in the topic of making technology accessible
and usable by persons with disabilities, the reality is that they often do
not know how or where to start. Awareness comes first.
