    WordCamp Denmark 2015Speaker: Torben Heikel Vinther

    I dette oplæg giver jeg en introduktion til hvad tilgængelig er og hvorfor det er vigtigt. Jeg kommer også ind på, hvordan WordPress har det med tilgængelighed, og ikke mindst hvad du selv kan gøre for at gøre WordPress tilgængelig for alle.
