Working as an accessibility advocate can be difficult, frustrating and sometimes very lonely. In this talk I tell you how you can survive in an inaccessible world where it seems like everybody is against you and become best friends forever with your boss, co-worker and even with angry customers with a disability. So that accessibility becomes and remains fun (again).
