Frances讲话:
大家好,我是王馥明,我是FrancesWestCo全球咨询顾问公司的创始人。
今天我以信息无障碍产品联盟专家顾问的身份,请到全球无障碍宣传日的创始人Joe Deven和Jennison Asuncion和各位分享宣传日的起源、目的和他们对中国的宣传日活动的期待。
Joe Devon他是一位有多年产品设计和开发经验的高级技术专家,也是位于洛杉矶的Dimond咨询公司的创始人。Jennison Asuncion先生,他从2006年开始由加拿大到美国,一直积极参与信息无障碍建设工作,现在在微软旗下的领英公司做信息无障碍工程部的总监。
现在请Joe致辞。

Joe讲话:
谢谢Frances。全球无障碍宣传日的历史可以追溯到2011年,当时我是在AmericanIdol.com从事网络开发。而我父亲当时正日渐衰老,他亲自办理银行业务时遇到了很多麻烦,而网上银行其实应该可以解决这些问题。但是,银行网站的无障碍情况让我很沮丧。
因此,我写了一篇文章并发布在一个少有人知的数据库博客里,倡导我们为开发人员和设计师以及参与构建数字产品的任何人创建一个全球无障碍宣传日。让大家有机会去尝试和提高自己产品的无障碍性。从那时起,这个活动每年都很火爆。
Jennison讲话:
最令我兴奋的是我们九周年的到来,我不敢相信我们已经开展九年了。尽管今年一切都与冠状病毒有关。我们有很多虚拟的在线活动,这意味着我们将有更多来自世界各地的人能够参加。我也很兴奋,因为我们有印度尼西亚和阿塞拜疆首次加入我们,一同庆祝全球无障碍宣传日的到来。我想在此感谢CAPA(信息无障碍产品联盟)。我们很兴奋得知无障碍宣传日活动已经在中国开展两年了。再一次,我要感谢信息无障碍产品联盟为无障碍做出的努力,这很重要。通过你们与同行不断的分享,会使得中国变得更加无障碍。

Joe讲话:
我也赞成Jennison的看法。我们真的很高兴看到中国积极参与全球无障碍宣传日。因此,非常感谢信息无障碍产品联盟积极参与其中。并且感谢Frances告知我们并邀请我们参与。祝大家全球无障碍宣传日快乐!
Frances讲话:现在我代表两位专家和我个人祝贺中国全球无障碍宣传日的活动(有更)多人参加,进行顺利。谢谢!

Frances:
Hi, everyone. I am Frances West, the founder of FrancesWestCo Global Advisory Company.
As a senior advisor of the Accessibility Products Alliance, I am very happy to invite the founders of Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD), Joe Deven and Jennison Asuncion, to share the origin and purpose of GAAD and expectations for the coming events in China.
Joe Devon is a senior technical expert with many years of product design and development experience. He is the founder of Dimond consulting company based in Los Angeles. Since 2006, Jennison Asuncion has been committed to accessibility, from Canada to the United States. Now he is the head of the accessibility engineering evangelism of LinkedIn.
Now, let's welcome Joe.  Joe, please.
Joe:
Thank you Frances. The history of Global Accessibility Awareness Day dates back to 2011 when I was at a web developer working on American Idol.com. And my dad was getting older and he had a lot of trouble banking in person and online banking should have been the solution. However, the banking website was inaccessible that made me pretty upset.
So I wrote a blog post on an obscure database blog. And I proposed that we should create a Global Accessibility Awareness Day for developers and designers and anybody involved building digital products to have this day where they try and improve their accessibility. Since then, the event has gone viral with every single year.
Jennison:
What I'm excited for most in our ninth year and I can't believe we're turning nine years old this year.  It is that despite everything that's going on with the coronavirus.
We are having a lot of virtual online events, which means that we're gonna have a lot more people from around the world being able to participate. I'm also excited because we have Indonesia and Azerbaijan joining us for the first time celebrating global accessibility awareness day.
I want to take a minute to thank CAPA. It's very exciting for us to have learned that events has been taking place in China for a couple of years now. So again, I want to thank CAPA for making accessibility something that's important and that you're sharing with your colleagues in China to make China a much more accessible place.
Joe:
I too would like to echo Jennison's words. We are so excited to see China and getting involved in Global Accessibility Awareness Day. So thank you so much to CAPA for getting involved. And to Frances for informing us about this and inviting us to send you a message. So happy Global Accessibility Awareness Day.
Frances:
Now, on behalf of the two founders and myself, I wish the events in China for the GAAD success!Thanks.
