Disability Representation in Accessibility with Nic Steenhout

April 22, 2022

Interactive Transcript

Welcome to 3Play Media’s Allied Podcast, a show on all things accessibility. This month’s episode features accessibility consultant Nic Steenhout and is about including disabled people in accessibility work.

A developer in the mid-’90s, Nic was approached by clients facing issues not yet part of the public consciousness. On the emerging web, accessibility hurdles kept people with disabilities from engaging in a technological revolution.

Confronted by this gap within the digital landscape, Nic began championing web accessibility. He transitioned into the non-profit sector, where he collaborated with people with various impairments and was introduced to new assistive technologies. 

Twenty years on, Nic continues his accessibility work as an independent consultant for both the private and non-profit sectors. Having worked on three continents, he’s engaged with thousands of individuals with disabilities. Blogger, podcaster, and public speaker, Nic offers real-world insight into everyday accessibility issues.
