Pan/Parapan American Games Sends AODA Alliance Chair an Inaccessible Invitation to Kickoff for Countdown to Toronto 2015 Games – What Example for Digital Accessibility is Ontario Showcasing for the World?

August 27, 2013

We can’t make this up! Last week the Government-subsidized Toronto 2015 Pan Parapan American Games sent AODA Alliance Chair David Lepofsky, who is blind, an inaccessible (and hence, unreadable) email invitation to an upcoming “good news” kick-off of the lead-up to the Games. Lepofsky gets and answers dozens, and at times, hundreds of emails each day and was shocked when this inaccessible one arrived.
