Folks, are you or someone you know working from home full-time for the first time?

Tomorrow! @firstname.lastname@example.org gives his online workshop on accessibility testing: Learn about automated testing, hands-on manual testing, practical takeaways, and more! #a11y https://knowbility.org/services/training/hands-on-training-accessibility-testing-workshop/
