This Thursday, Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD), is a great opportunity to talk to your colleagues about digital access and inclusion, and to learn about how to help those with different disabilities and needs.
To help promote and celebrate the day, I’ve come up with the automated banner-link you see above.
Global Accessibility Awareness Day happens on the third Thursday of May each year. The widget automatically appears 10 days before, and disappears 5 days after (configurable). It shows the correct date each year — all thanks to Datejs.
The widget requires zero configuration by default. Here are the two lines to include on your site (thanks RawGit):
<div id="id-gaad"></div> <script src="https://cdn.rawgit.com/nfreear/gaad-widget/2.0-beta/build/GAAD.widget.js"></script>
It is compatible with all modern browsers, and with Internet Explorer 9-11.
And, it’s open source.
