Update on our review of GARI

In launching our review of GARI in August, we were interested to receive your thoughts on the accessibility features that we report on as part of the project. We received a lot of great feedback and as a result, we are now in the process of implementing the changes. We will be making the descriptions easier to understand and we will be adding 15 new features to the template for reporting on. There will also be changes to the website to make it easier to navigate as well as other improvements. We thought the occasion of the International Day of Persons with Disabilities was the time to announce these changes and you can find our press release here.

We will be detailing the changes in separate posts so we can explain their relevance and usefulness to those with limited vision, hearing, dexterity or cognition. In the mean time, we would like to thank you for the comments and suggestions made as part of this review and we look forward to continuing to improve GARI for the benefit of those with special needs.
