"ThankView’s mission is to build lasting relationships, especially through video, on behalf of those who make the world a better place. Our goal is to empower our partners with the tools and information they need to foster deeper connections with their audiences.

In this conversation I break down accessibility by encouraging people to start off thinking about the four categories of disabilities. I also talk about semantic HTML and ARIA, and reassure we don't have to learn it all at once.
