About the Founder: Srinivasu Chakravarthula
Srinivasu Chakravarthula has been working in the area of Accessibility for about 13+ years. Srinivasu is a Certified Professional in Web Accessibility (CPWA) by International Association of Accessibility Professionals (IAA). He is also an Individual Member at IAAP. Here is a story how e began working in the area of Accessibility in his own words.
It was during my tenure at The National Association for the Blind, Karnataka Branch, we have decided to built a website for the organization with the help of volunteers. Work has been done with a lot of passion, but just before the launch date, we have noticed that though website is beautiful; it cannot be used by our very own students with vision impairment. That is what triggered me to think of accessibility and opportunity came in form of Ms. Shilpi Kapoor, Founder of BarrierBreak (then Net Systems Solutions).
Srinivasu has worked for a few multinational companies where he has played a key role in setting up accessibility practices. He has been awarded With Yahoo! Ratna Award during his tenure at Yahoo! in 2010 and NCPEDP – MphasiS Universal Design Award in 2013.
