As a seasoned front-end website developer and accessibility engineer offering a most unique set of skills and experiences, Aaron Cannon co-founded a digital accessibility agency, Accessible360, to help clients navigate compliance. Aaron has a vested interest in making the web more accessible for everyone because he uses a screen reader, for both work and recreational use of the internet. He leads the design / UX on the National Institute for the Blind website; this marks the first time a person who is blind took the lead designing a site for both sighted and visually impaired people.
