The Accessibility of the Grammys

The article, "How The Grammys Got Accessibility Right, And What They Could Have Done Better", discusses important improvements in accessibility that were made, but how there were still problems with full inclusion for deaf and disabled people at the event and for those watching at home.

There were a lot of firsts on Grammy night for accessibility: a built in ramp, American Sign Language (ASL) interpreters, and live audio-description and captioning. But it would have been helpful for self-description to have been included for viewers who are blind and for ASL interpreters to be visible to viewers at home. The article also includes a Q and A with Lachi, a blind, award-winning vocalist, writer and community leader, who worked with the Grammys on accessibility.
