VIDEO: Error 404: Accessibility Not Found

Almost everyone knows how frustrating it is when a website won’t load, or when your internet connection suddenly cuts out.  Now imagine that frustration when you know what you’re trying to see is right in front of you – but you just can’t get to it.

That’s just scratching the surface of the importance of internet accessibility.


I’m Maddie Bright, a high school senior here to share about how something so vital to everyday life isn’t required to be accessible.  Yeah, learning that shocked me too.  Thankfully, I’ve got a lot to tell you about how you can make your website accessible.

So join me in learning about our wonderful World Wide Web!  Then, feel free to share this video to help get the word out about the need for an accessible internet for all.
