As the EDF outlines, the panel discussion will focus on how to bridge the gap between the legislation and the real impact on the everyday lives of persons with disabilities. Many state parties face challenges in ensuring that accessibility provisions are implemented while also taking into consideration the expectations and lived experiences of people with disabilities in different fields, notably in transportation, the built environment and information/communication technologies.

Since 2018, the European Disability Forum (EDF) and Siteimprove have partnered to bring the organizations’ vision of creating a digitally accessible Europe, ensuring a seamless experience for all people regardless of their abilities. “We value our long standing partnership with Siteimprove, a technology company that shares our belief in an inclusive world that offers equal access to information, services, products, and applications to everyone,” said Catherine Naughton, Director, European Disabilities Forum. “The EDF and Siteimprove are fundamentally committed to helping organizations champion web accessibility through technology, expertise, constant innovation, and collaboration with the community of persons with disabilities.”
