    Today, Thursday, May 16th, 2019, is Global Accessibility Awareness Day; and Microsoft is committed to ensuring that its technology, from conception to production is built for everyone – including the approximate 650 million people living with disabilities.
    According to the "Disabled World towards tomorrow" website, 650 million people — nearly 20% of the world's population — are living with a disability. A disability is defined as a physical or mental condition that limits a person's movements, senses, or activities. Many millions of people around the world have limited access to the opportunities and technology the majority of the population enjoys without inhibition.

    Global Accessibility Awareness Day's (GAAD) purpose is to get everyone "talking, thinking and learning about digital (web, software, mobile, etc.) access/inclusion and people with different disabilities."

    Rather than just trying to build general awareness of these challenges, GAAD is promoting action by targeting the "design, development, usability, and related communities who are responsible for building, shaping, funding and influencing technology and its use." That means Microsoft, and it means you.
