Six impossible things before breakfast

1 minute read

Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.

So said Lewis Carroll in Through the Looking-Glass, the sequel to Alice in Wonderland. It's a whimsical quote, where Carroll challenges each of us to push the boundaries of what is conceivable, entertain improbable ideas and how this can have a transformative impact on our lives.

I usually send this email every day before breakfast. So I wondered, could we start believing six seemingly impossible things as we tackle accessibility and do this before we have had our morning coffee?

So here's my attempted list:

  1. People with disabilities are not a minority
  2. Accessibility isn't a feature
  3. Accessibility isn't a technical problem
  4. Accessibility isn't time-consuming and expensive
  5. You can't outsource accessibility
  6. We can make our website accessible

Stay tuned as we'll talk about the first impossible thing tomorrow: People with disabilities are not a minority.

Did you enjoy this bite-sized message?

I send out short emails like this every day to help you gain a fresh perspective on accessibility and understand it without the jargon, so you can build more robust products that everyone can use, including people with disabilities.
