PTS sponsors hackathon on web accessibility

Tuesday 16 February 2016 | 18:27 CET | News
Swedish regulator PTS announced it will hold a hackathon on 15 March aimed at coming up with new ways to make the web more accessible. The event is supported by Openlab, Stimdi and Dataforeningen. The aim is to spread awareness of web accessibility and to stimulate ideas that can help internet work equally well for everyone. The developers will look at ways conditions such as color blindness, dyslexia, stress, language skills and different movement disorders can affect web use.
