Thanks for supporting our film launch - did you like the video?May 27, 2015Last Thursday you helped us launch our new film "Make Technology Work for Everyone: introducing digital accessibility" on social media. We'd really like to know what you think of the video:
- Does is help you understand the concept of digital accessibility?
- Are there things we didn't mention you'd have liked us to?
- Will you be changing anything about the way you produce websites, apps, software or documents since you watched the film?
Because you and 144 others shared the film via Thunderclap, it has had over 3,500 views on YouTube already, we've tweeted a challenge to people to help us reach 4,000 views by Friday. We've also uploaded the "Make Technology Work for Everyone" film to Facebook - please help us share it there if you can!
One of the other people to share the film after our launch was Stephen Fry. Stephen Fry's tweet about the film has been retweeted by 670 people so far.
Among others, the Disability News Service reported on how the launch of our "Access animation will spread the word on how to fix the web".
We're proud of our film and really grateful to you for sharing it. Don't forget to check out our accompanying webpage of further resources, and email us your thoughts on the video via: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks again for your help,
Fix the Web project
We made it to over 100 supporters - thanks for your help!May 21, 2015Dear supporters of the "Make Technology Work for All!" Thunderclap,
We have hit our target of 100 supporters! It looks like the link to our new animation about digital accessibility could be seen by up to 133,674 people - because you've joined in with our publicity campaign!
... and there are still over 10 hours to go - so it could be even more!
To accompany the video when it goes live, we have created an accompanying "accessibility tips" webpage containing transcripts, a version of the script with further information on each of the points made, and tools and links to other organisations that can help us make the digital world more accessible. This is just a holding page for now - but please check it out in 11 hours' time!
If you use twitter, you can share our excitement at reaching our target and encourage even more people to join in by retweeting this "102 supporters!" tweet.
If you use Facebook, you can like/share this "102 supporters!" post.
Don't forget to check out the wide range of events and activities that are taking place all around the world and online for Global Accessibility Awareness Day! There's an huge amount of useful information under the #GAAD tag on twitter (which you can explore even if you don't have an account)
Thanks again for supporting us!
