GAAD 2021 Marks Seven Consecutive Years of Prakat’s Involvement and Commitment to Accessibility, Enhancing the Digital Experience for Users with Visual, Auditory, Motor, or Other Disabilities.

Dalrada Corporation (OTCQB: DFCO, "Dalrada") recently announced that its Technology Company, Prakat Solutions Inc., will host and sponsor its annual virtual Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD) event to commemorate its commitment to resolve accessibility challenges around the world. For the event, Prakat and Dalrada will partner with the EqualGenius Foundation to collaborate with industry leaders and share their experiences.

Prakat aims to bring corporate entities, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and people from all industries together to raise awareness of the various issues surrounding digital inclusivity and web accessibility. Since its inception in 2012, GAAD has stressed the importance of enhancing the digital experience for users who have visual, auditory, motor, or other disabilities by ensuring accessibility across websites, mobile applications, and electronic documents.

GAAD 2021 will highlight and represent speakers from the technology, corporate, and educational sectors who are paramount to ensuring a successful inclusive digital experience – both from a user standpoint and a creator standpoint. Beginning Thursday, May 20th, GAAD 2021 will span four days in four global time zones to make it more accessible to a larger audience.

Prakat’s virtual event will be held on May 21st and features a group of internationally-known guests who will be speaking on various topics, including Joe Devon and Jennison Asuncion, the founders of the GAAD movement; Mike Paciello, an accessibility champion with over 35 years of experience; Mahiraa Jaan Pasha and Dr. Pasha, founders of Miracles on Wheels; Arjun Natarajan and Lishuang Jenny Chen, founders of A&J Consulting; Jason Thompson from OLG Canada; Tina Sarkar Thompson from the University of Toronto; Clare Su from Nurotron Biotechnology, China; and B.S. Nagesh from TRRAIN, among others.

Prakat’s experienced accessibility engineering teams specialize in testing and modernizing software and products to increase accessibility for people with disabilities. Prakat facilitates applications and products that integrate with assistive technologies in compliance with accessibility standards and laws as set forth by the W3C and other country-specific regulations such as the American Disabilities Act (ADA), British Standard 8878 (BS 8878), and the Canadian AODA.

"There is a tremendous opportunity for Prakat's GAAD 2021 initiative to impact a large number of people in positive ways," according to Anuradha Biswas, CEO and Founder of Prakat Solutions. "We've been involved with GAAD for seven years now and each year provides us with a larger opportunity than before to reach an even wider global audience. There are over 1 billion people suffering from some form of a disability around the world and we're confident that we can help improve their online experience," said Biswas.
