DIR Encourages Participation for Global Accessibility Awareness Day

May 17 2021

Global Accessibility Awareness Day is on Thursday, May 20, 2021, and DIR is committed to digital access and inclusion for people with disabilities.

DIR invites you to celebrate and advocate on Global Accessibility Awareness Day. There are so many ways we are encouraging participation and awareness.

State agencies and institutions of higher education can post to the DIR-Accessibility discussion list. They can also enroll in free courses through DIR's EIR Accessibility Learning Management System or attend a digital accessibility event. In honor of Global Accessibility Awareness Day, as part of the Technology Today Series, DIR is also sponsoring a free 4-part series on Microsoft 365 Accessibility that shows people how to use Microsoft's built-in accessibility tools and features.

Please contact DIR at statewideaccessibility@dir.texas.gov  for more information.
