This time around, we are joined by SitePen’s resident accessibility expert, Sarah Higley! We talk about Sarah’s recent trip to the CSUN Assistive Technology Conference, why accessibility benefits everyone, how we don’t really know how many lives we might be improving when we make our software more accessible, and how we can take steps toward implementing and testing accessibility.
