How far would you be willing to go to make your content or service available to as many people as possible?
Would you be willing to record a video blog of yourself reading out-loud over 175 of your blog posts making sure you don’t leave out individuals with impairments who want access to your content?
Let me introduce you to Sarah Levis. Sarah is actively making her message available to ANYONE that desires access.
I will be interviewing Sarah Levis AKA GirlWithTheCane at the end of this month.
Sarah has had not one but TWO STROKES before the age of 35. She developed what is called a Brain Arteriovenous Malformation(AVM).
When you move form, “pretty healthy” to dealing with a rare medical condition your perspective changes. You identify with and often take on the role of “disability advocate.” A light switch turns on, and you start envisioning a world that embraces ACCESSIBILITY FOR ALL.
How can I convince you that your service, device, website, SHOULD be accessible?
You don’t have to get sick or become disabled to “see the light.” Have a little faith in those that have gotten sick and or disabled and are making the daily scarifies.
Trust me when I say EVERYONE WANT’S ACCESSIBILITY!
You may think moving from “pretty healthy,” to ” chronic disability” is a far fetched idea and not scheduled into your life plans. I pray that is the case. BUT life happens and when it does you will appreciate those that are putting accessibility into practice.
Repeat after me….
“Completing this project will take a while! But I believe that it’s worth doing.”
