WordPress Workshop: Beginning the Accessibility Journey

September 19 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Topic: Accessibility: Beginning the Journey

Presenter: Ben Byrne of Corner Shop Creative

Skill Level: All Skill Levels Welcome!

Description: Making sure your WordPress site is accessible is important for so many critical reasons, but it can be intimidating to sort through the details to determine which standards to try to meet — Section 508? WCAG 2.0 level AA? — and figure out if you’re meeting them. What’s important to keep in mind, though, is that ANY accessibility efforts are better than none.

Being mindful of not letting the perfect be the enemy of the good, this session will cover: getting going, outlining some of the most important low-hanging fruit you should be sure to address, and highlighting easy and free automated testing tools you can take advantage of.

Even some simple actions and tests can make a huge difference for your users!

Accessibility perfection may be a journey of a thousand miles, but attend this workshop and we’ll get you on the road and help you take the first few big steps!
