I previously worked at IBM as a Senior Technical Staff Member who specialized in Web Accessibility. I created my nickname as a combination of my name, Becky, and a11y. A11y represents accessibility, just like i18n represents internationalization. This is referred to as a numeronym, the first letter of the word, the number of characters in the word between first and last letter, followed by the last letter. This is my space to comment about Web Accessibility and share info, techniques, and ideas. I am working to update to this site before the end of 2017. Thanks for your patience.
