“Web accessibility refers to the inclusive practice of removing barriers that prevent interaction with, or access to, websites by people with disabilities.
When your website is accessible, all users can access your content and functionality no matter their abilities. Visually-impaired users can visit your website using a screen reader. Those who can’t use a mouse can navigate your site using a keyboard or other input device. Most accessibility features will also improve your SEO. When your site is inaccessible, research shows you could be excluding up to 20 percent of your users.
This talk will cover:
▪ The basics of accessibility and why it’s important
▪ Common accessibility issues
▪ Legal requirements
▪ How to test the accessibility of themes and other products before you buy
▪ How to test and support accessibility in your projects
