How to easily audit your WP site for Accessibility

May 2 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Meetup: Tampa & Ybor

Featured Speaker: Joe LoPreste Steve Curtis 

Accessibility made easy for WordPress Part 2: How to audit your WP website for accessibility

We will explain how you can very easily run an accessibility audit for your WordPress website using completely free tools.

We will also show you some techniques to run a few manual accessibility tests on your website.

It is very important that we as WordPress developers continue to design and create with inclusion and accessibility in mind.

The first step in accessibility is understanding a few core things:
(Accessibility made easy for WP part 1)
1. What Section 508 and accessibility are.
2. Why accessibility (WCAG) and inclusion is so important.
3. What we can do about it as WP developers.

The second step in accessibility is understanding where your websites accessibility compliance issues are.
(Accessibility made easy for WP part 2)

That is where this talk comes in because when you leave here you will be able to run simple automatic and manual accessibility audits on your website.

So join us and learn how to help 100’s of millions of people use the internet and help WordPress be inclusive to all people!

As always, we will have our “Ask us anything” segment at the beginning of the meetup.

So, if you are having any problems with your WordPress website or any question in general, this is the meetup for you.

Bring your questions and your laptop so we can crowdsource a solution for you.

Bring your business cards as well and come in early to network.

The doors open at 6 pm and the talk start at 6:30 pm so there will plenty of time to meet new people that are in the same industry as you.

We look forward to seeing you there!
