The Accessibility Strengthening Act (Barrierefreiheitsstärkungsgesetz, BFSG) that has been passed will place clear requirements on products and services in terms of accessibility in the future. The products and services covered by the law range from hardware to self-service terminals and websites. The topic therefore affects the entire digital economy. In our LinkedIn Live Event "Inclusion. The Accessibility Strengthening Act in the Digital Space and Beyond" we talk with René Schaar (NDR), Carla Polaczek (Experience Designer, denkwerk) and Robert Krämer (Technical Director, denkwerk) about the topic.
How can the law promote inclusion in all areas of life? And what are the current developments – digital and analog – in accessibility? We'll be talking about it on April 18 at LinkedIn Live. Be there! The event will be moderated by Chérine De Bruijn. And as always, you can ask questions before the event, but of course also during and after it. We are looking forward to your interest!
