Ofcom's Global Accessibility Awareness Day
For Global Accessibility Awareness Day we’ve been exploring digital accessibility and challenging colleagues to experience what millions face every day in the digital world: such as going mouseless, working using a screen reader, and trying disability simulator plugins, which is being demonstrated in the video here. We’re using Funkify, a Chrome plugin, to simulate how people with dyslexia, tunnel vision, colour-blindness and more might see and use the Ofcom website.
