More digital accessibility through new job description

Dear Sir or Madam,

Germany is not a pioneer when it comes to digitization. Germany also has some catching up to do when it comes to digital accessibility. The International Association of Accessibility Professionals (IAAP) wants to change this. Anne-Marie Nebe, project manager of the IAAP DACH Chapter currently being founded, explained to us in an interview why a new job description as a professional for accessibility can change this.

Have an accessible week,

Anne Hofmann
Editorial team REHACARE.com
