A11y Bytes Melbourne

A11y Bytes, Australia’s largest community-driven accessibility event in Australia is returning to Melbourne.

The heart of digital accessibility and inclusion is not about guidelines, codes or regulations. It’s about people, and life, and how we live, how we access information, and how our lives are affected by the technologies of today.

Join us on Global Accessibility Awareness Day for a dynamic fast-paced evening of lightning talks about digital accessibility, inclusion and the full range of human diversity.

You don’t have to be an accessibility aficionado to attend. This event is about us all talking, thinking and learning about digital accessibility and inclusion together.
