Several months ago I did osteopathy with a specialist who was blind; While patting on my back and moving around some vertebrae of mine, he explained me how he used iOS screen reader functionality to be able to get on with his banking applications. The article Blind customers locked out by bank web upgrades released recently by the BBC reminded me of the problematics that disabled people can meet with technology when accessibility is underlooked. A very empathic read!

Recruitment process may lead to disappointment since candidates spend a few hours within a formal context and meeting few people they may even not work along with.

Have a read, it may inspire you to find your own pearls!

See you next time!
