Transcript: Ben Caldwell on the Inaccessibility of Online Job Applications

PEAT asked Ben Caldwell, Web Developer at Pushing7: “Given that many job applications are not accessible to people with disabilities, what’s your advice on how best to change this?”

Caldwell: So, from my perspective, given the changes that we’ve had in technology over the last few years, there’s really no excuse for online job application systems to be inaccessible. So, the advice I would give us the we need better advocacy, more people asking for the accessibility of these systems, and better education for the developers who are building them so that they can take advantage of the accessibility features that are already built into these technologies.
