Double Tap Podcast Episode 110: Carrots, Sticks & Salsa

This week Double Tap Canada looks at the topic of online accessibility, specifically weather it’s better to force companies to make their services accessible through regulations or simply by educating them to the benefits of having a service which is accessible to all.

Web Accessibility.

We have 2 interviews this week from the TechShare Pro 2019 event regarding web accessibility. First, we hear from Malin Rygg, Head of Authority for Universal Design of ICT in Norway who explains how

Norway checks on websites to make sure they are accessible and will impose fines if they’re not and secondly, from Stuart Seaborn, Managing Director of Litigation at Disability Rights Advocates, who gives his thoughts on how things are handled in the US.

Haben Girma.

After Steven, once again, proudly tells us of his chicken spoon achievement, we have an interview with Haben Girma who is the first Deaf / Blind person to get a Law degree from Harvard. She tells us of her work at Lenovo as the Accessibility and Inclusion Advisor and the importance of braille.

Black Friday.

Shaun & Steven talk about just what they’ve bought this week and try to find out when Black Friday actually starts. Shaun has ordered some Blink XT2 security cameras and Steven plans on chilling out with a Tassimo Caddy drinks machine.
