The Accessibility Community Group of HighEdWeb Associates is set to convene online for a discussion on "Start by treating accessibility issues as bugs, not feature requests" on Monday, February 19, 2024, from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM CST.

Spearheaded by Mike Gifford, Senior Strategist at CivicActions, the session aims to reshape perspectives on addressing accessibility concerns in digital development. Gifford's presentation emphasizes Drupal's pioneering stance in prioritizing digital accessibility and sustainability, attributing its success to strong leadership commitment and open-source collaboration.

By treating accessibility issues like bugs rather than secondary features, Gifford advocates for a proactive approach, leveraging existing best practices and resources. He encourages developers to embark on an accessibility journey, fostering continual progress regardless of project status.

The session promises to illuminate key strategies for cultivating a more inclusive digital scenario, inviting all HighEdWeb members to join the ongoing conversation on the #accessibility Slack channel. As digital accessibility continues to evolve, insights from this discussion offer invaluable guidance for creating a more inclusive online environment.
