Drupal Café keynote 14.2.2017 by Seppo Kankaantähti, Invalidiliitto

Seppo Kankaantähti, digital communications officer from The Finnish Association of People with Physical Disabilities (FPD) wants to break the old myth that the accessible is always ugly. With examples in the new Invalidiliitto.fi site, Seppo shows that it’s pretty easy to make a modern, responsive and visually appealing accessible web service as long as you keep a few things in mind. He also gives a few tips on how to make sure your new accessible web service stays accessible after the launch day.
