@MollyWattTalks @joelanman @British_Airways not accessible? I can't believe that's not an accessible survey platform. Not so hard to create! @MollyWattTalks @joelanman Will look for a better options if/when we do it again - which may mean building our own. Lots of lessons learnt! @MollyWattTalks @joelanman Went with Survey Monkey which was better than many but still had some accessibility issues. @MollyWattTalks @joelanman I tested 10 survey platforms and wasn't able to find a fully accessible one.Principles of ethical web development: https://t.co/ky2lC8Ws8L — to be expounded in a series of free digital books by @OReillyMedia.
