I’m talking with Margaret Staples, a developer evangelist at Twilio, who has been working hard at spreading the message about the importance of accessibility. A self-taught programmer, she says that the resources about accessibility are sometimes difficult to find, being scattered in many places.
Michelle McQuigge is a blind reporter with the Canadian Press. Many organizations do press release with images of text on Twitter, making her job impossible. She also wishes designers and developers to know that if you don’t implement accessibility, you’re going to lose big!
