2014 Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD) 15.5.

Global Accessibility Awareness Day is a community-driven effort whose goal is to dedicate one day to raising the profile of and introducing the topic of digital (web, software, mobile app/device etc.) accessibility and people with different disabilities to the broadest audience possible. 2014 Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD) is May 15th.

  • Experience Accessibility First-Hand on May 15

Whether you participate in a public or private event to mark Global Accessibility Awareness Day, on May 15, we encourage designers, developers, usability professionals, and everyone else to take an hour to experience first-hand the impact of digital accessibility (or lack thereof).

  • Go Mouseless For An Hour

Go ahead and unplug your mouse and only use your keyboard alone (tab/shift tab, arrow keys, enter and spacebar) to navigate and interact with your favorite websites and applications. If you use a touchpad, trackpad or similar input method, disable it, and use the keyboard instead.

  • Enlarge Your Fonts

Check that your page(s) is accessible and usable for low vision/visually impaired users.

  • Check for Sufficient Color Contrast

  • Surf the Web With A Screen Reader For An Hour

In the case of the mobile devices, why not try using some of your favorite apps with different accessibility features enabled.

  • Caption a video - at least prepare a transcript.

If it is not your video, send the transcript to the owner and suggest that they follow the information provided by Google for YouTube or 3Play Media for Vimeo to add captions.
