The accessibility community suffers from a vast number of problems communicating and convincing stakeholders, even when law and policy are on its side. The gaps in accessibility for today’s hardware, software and content are increasingly due to an inability to reach and persuade designers, engineers and managers regarding their role in an inclusive future.This is a two-part talk: first is an overview of the current state of accessibility, including an introduction to accessibility features on the Web and mobile devices. Then we will discuss what’s necessary to craft a message that identifies and overcomes obstacles, be they technical, societal or mythological. Attendees will leave with a better understanding of the common problems stakeholders face, along with their responsibilities and their potential to make things better in a progressive and complementary way. Who should attend this session? Everyone
