Johan Huijkman

Like no other engineer in the Netherlands, Johan knows how to integrate accessibility as a starting point in every digital product development.

Visual and other impairments affect everyone who is confronted with a situation in which they temporarily cannot see, look, use their hands, et cetera. In this way, Johan links accessibility to user-friendliness, [...]
