Hello, I’m Jon
I run As It Should Be and I’m passionate about accessibility, sustainability and running an ethical business.
I’ve been active in the digital accessibility community since 2004, promoting best practices for creating more accessible websites and mobile apps, most notably as @a11y on Twitter. I’m regarded as a leading expert on accessibility in iOS and Android apps, I’ve presented at events around the world, and I’m an organiser and co-host of the Bristol Inclusive Design & Development meetup.
I also enjoy connecting with and supporting other small businesses to become more responsible businesses that align their work to their values and consider people and our planet alongside profit.
I’ve worked with…
- Alzheimer’s Society
- Met Office
- National Geographic
- Office for National Statistics
- OVO Energy
- …and more you’ll likely know.
“Jon’s input was immensely useful, pitched right and clearly explained. His workshop with our team was an extremely valuable learning experience.”
