"Caroline Desrosiers [Snippet]: So, if we look at the statistics for the number of people that have disabilities, it's actually one out of five individuals in the world that identifies as having a disability. So, this is a very large population size that we're talking about.
Intro [Voiceover]: It's an age-old question. Can you do well by doing good? Welcome to the Grow For Good™ podcast, where we speak with leaders who strive to make a positive impact on the world. Here's the host of the Grow For Good™ podcast, Jed Morey.
Jed Morey: We first met Caroline Desrosiers through our sister initiative InclusionHub, an online resource designed to help organizations in their digital inclusion and accessibility journeys. In the article she writes about the importance of descriptive alt text on website images not just for users but the website owners as well.
Caroline is an experienced digital marketer with a deep understanding of web accessibility, something near and dear to our hearts. She is soft spoken and deliberate. An outdoor enthusiast with an artist’s appreciation of the visual world and a desire to bring these visions to life for blind and low vision internet users.
And like most purpose driven entrepreneurs she has the ability to stay focused on growing her business and the greater good that growth affords. In the complex world of digital inclusion, hers seems like a simple solution on the surface but it’s harder to execute than it seems and is often overlooked. And as you’ll hear, Caroline’s approach to alt text is not just powerful, it can sometimes be beautiful."
