Slovenian Accessibility Awareness Day – State of Accessibility in Slovenia (Private/Internal)

22 May 2021 | 10:00 AM-10:00 PM Europe/Ljubljana (Slovenia)

I wanted to contribute to Global Accessibility Awareness Day, therefore I decided to do a quick analysis and evaluate the state of accessibility for top Slovenian domains, from both public and private sector. This will be a private event but I plan to share my findings, at least as an overview. This is the first event that is targeted to Slovenia, so I am calling it Slovenian Accessibility Awareness Day. My ambition is that with time it will acquire larger public interest.
