Website Accessibility – WordCamp Atlanta 2018

WordCamp Atlanta was held in Atlanta on April 2018. The recorded presentations are now being posted.

One of the presentations was from Kim Camp Smalley.  She provided an overview of the current US laws and standards regarding web accessibility, techniques and tools to evaluate a WordPress site for accessibility and how to identify the limitations of automated evaluations.

Summary:

The number of companies facing legal action for inaccessible websites is on the rise. Inaccessible websites and digital content can limit access to users with disabilities. WordPress users can employ web accessibility evaluation tools to help determine if their content is accessible to users with disabilities. This session will provide an overview of several WordPress plugins, web-based tools, and accessibility resources. Designers, developers, and content creators can utilize these tools to evaluate websites against recognized guidelines and create a better user experience.

The video and a link to download her slides can be found here.
