This past weekend, I attended and presented at WordCamp Seattle: Experienced. This was the first of two WordCamp Seattles this year—the second will be for “beginners” in October.
I kicked off the first session of presentations with my talk, “Doing Your Part: Coding Accessible WordPress Websites.” As the title suggests, the presentation contained some technical information, but the slides also contain lots of information about accessibility that anyone can learn from (mostly in the first third of the slides, up to the pyramid graphic and the following slide).
Update 4 Sept 2015: The video of this presentation went up a while ago, so you can watch the slides with my voice explaining them.
Assistive Technology Videos
In particular, the videos of a screen reader user and keyboard navigator are important watching for anyone who maintains a website and wants to—needs to, really—understand the range of ways that people interact with their websites. These tools are often called “assistive technology” (AT). If you don’t know what I’m talking about yet, you’ll learn really quickly!
