Dear WAI-IG Participants,

I am writing to ask for support in bringing attention to digital
accessibility in one specific mainstream technology conference.

South by Southwest or SXSW is one of the most widely attended technology
conferences in the world. In past years, there was pretty good coverage of
Accessibility topics, but that has changed with the Panel Picker.
Accessibility may not be considered as "sexy" as block chain these days but
it is still as important as ever. Would you help to vote these
Accessibility focused sessions up?

Please look at these two proposals from Knowbility - one for the
Interactive festival and one for the education segment of the program.
https://panelpicker.sxsw.com/vote/87845
https://panelpicker.sxsw.com/vote/85332

If they seem like good overview sessions for Accessibility, please vote
them up. Just as importantly, please post on social media and make comments
on the SXSW web site panel picker itself. Community interest and support
helps them decide what to bring in from thousands of proposals.

Thanks for considering to vote and for your help!
