    Do you find yourself asking, is it accessible? Are you getting the answer, yes, it's digital and wondering if that answer is true?

Add your voice to a lively discussion about the term accessible and what it means for people across a broad scope of human function and at all stages of life. Topics discussed will include a functional definition of accessibility, the moving target of accessibility, the importance of asking the right questions, and how to locate and use supporting resources on the AEM Center website and other locations.
