Global Accessibility Awareness Day takes place on the 18th of May. Its purpose is to raise awareness about the accessibility of digital products for users with disabilities.

Accessibility describes the convenience of a website, software or an app for people with special needs, disabilities or diseases, the very possibility to be used by such people. »
