Back to the Basics – Improving the accessibility of your WordPress sites

Speakers Notes

As front-end developers we’re using a variety of advanced tools and techniques to create awesome things. While this makes us and our projects great we tend to forget about how diverse our users and thus the ways they consume our sites are. On the 100 most popular web sites the number of accessibility errors has increased by 60% over the last 5 years. Most of those errors could’ve been avoided by understanding and applying basic concepts of the frontend languages we use every day.

During this talk Manuel will illustrate how much of an impact simple tweaks in your HTML, CSS and JavaScript can have on the overall accessibility of your WordPress projects.
