- Debate & Discussion: Dan Middleton, Hyperledger Technical Steering Committee Chair recently brought up the topic of accessibility in our mailing list.

- Blockchain Accessibility - The Importance of Digital Accessibility
- The Accessibility issue more people with disabilities should think about
- Bitcoin needs to be more accessible for the visually impaired
- The Secret World of Disabled Gamers
- Smart Cities could be lousy to live in if you have a disability
- Disability Rights Advocates Sue Sharks Over App Accessibility: The non-profit organization Disability Rights Advocates has filed a class action lawsuit against the NHL’s San Jose Sharks for the team’s failure to make the Sharks’ mobile app more accessible to fans with vision disabilities. Blind people typically interact with digital content via screen readers, but the Sharks’ mobile app is currently incompatible with both VoiceOver and TalkBack, the native iOS and Android screen readers, respectively, according to a DRA press release.
