We have a Global "supply versus demand" issue. The corporations are creating demand but if the community is not willing to self-identity, empower ourselves and our fellow peers with disabilities, we will continue to have a supply problem.
Bottom line: If the community of persons with disabilities really came together to support each other, vendors supporting us, corporations hiring and including us, governments legislating for and sometimes against us, and more ... we could change the direction of our lives and the other 1.3B souls living with disabilities

Experience a real-world scenario exhibiting the synergy between the JAWS screen reader and TPGi’s JAWS compatibility testing tool, JAWS Inspect, as part of the accessibility QA process. Webinar attendees will observe the interaction between a real JAWS user struggling with a poorly designed web page and a TPGi accessibility tester making sense of the JAWS user’s accessibility challenges via the power of JAWS Inspect.
JAWS Inspect provides text output of the JAWS audio speech to enable non-JAWS users to efficiently test for screen reader compatibility. Attendees will get a first-hand look at how to use this tool alongside JAWS (or by itself) for quick and easy testing.

This webinar provides best practices for making Excel spreadsheets accessible to disabled people.
TPGi Accessibility Engineer, Aaron Farber, will review common accessibility issues within Excel spreadsheets and look at each accessibility issue first from the users’ perspective, in how that issue affects them. The webinar then takes participants through the author’s perspective and provides step-by-step instructions on how to fix that issue in their spreadsheet.
Additionally, Aaron will answer the nuts-and-bolts questions such as compatibility between Excel and other operating systems like MacOS and the accessibility of other spreadsheet programs. Excel has released many new features such as Data from Picture; this webinar evaluates them through the lens of accessibility.
Beyond building technical skills in Excel, participants will also learn whether WCAG applies to Excel spreadsheets.
Laura Chadwick, XRA's Vice President of Industry Relations and staff lead for its Accessibility Working Group, will provide an overview of the XRA's Developers Guide
