How did you get into accessibility?
I first entered digital accessibility whilst working at the BBC in user experience and design. I was actually working with Jonathan, our founder and director, on introducing text to speech on BBC news articles as well as other BBC accessibility products. At the time I was also chair of the BBC's disabled staff forum representing disabled employees in the Corporation.
What’s the one thing you’ve done in accessibility you’re most proud of?
I am particularly proud of working with major brands who are ‘walking the talk’ and making their digital products accessible to as many people as possible. It's great that such organisations are leading the way and influencing other organisations to do the same.
