“The COVID-19 quarantine allowed people with disabilities to work from home, access more resources online, and communicate in more accessible ways. While the crisis exposed gaps in accessibility, there were also great stories of organizations closing those gaps quickly.

We are eager to see the results of this year’s survey to see if the stories we have heard are reflected in the data.”
