  • Christine Laikind: Tips to Improve your SEO with Web Accessibility

    Christine Laikind: Tips to Improve your SEO with Web Accessibility

    WordCamp Greenville 2019Speaker: Christine Laikind

    April 1, 2019 — When a website is inaccessible, it is not just an issue of compliance, it is just bad practice on display. People with disabilities ranging from blindness, deafness, dyslexia and others may navigate and consume content in different ways with assistive technology (like screen readers, captioning or joy sticks). Therefore it is not that difficult to understand why lack of accessibility negatively impacts SEO. Web accessibility is not just for developers, it is just as important for marketers to make it part of their digital marketing to ensure that opportunities for success aren’t missed.

  • Graham Armfield: Designing for Accessibility

    Graham Armfield: Designing for Accessibility

    WordCamp Edinburgh 2017Speaker: Graham Armfield

    March 29, 2019 — The accessibility of a website is significantly affected by the underlying HTML, CSS and javascript that developers use to create it. But it is also possible to impact upon the accessibility of a site at the design stage – both the visual design, and the interactive design or UX. And it’s not just about colour schemes either.

    In this presentation I will outline a few key points to keep in mind when you are designing your next beautiful website or theme. I will illustrate the points with some good (and bad) examples.

    Good design and web accessibility can go hand in hand – come and find out how.

    I have previously presented this talk at WordCamp London 2017 and WordCamp Bristol 2017, and a couple of WP meetup groups.

However, usability and accessibility must be the first consideration in our choice of colours and their application. This talk gives practical guidance on how to approach and use colour in your web designs, with a few touch points on colour psychology and theory.

    December 13, 2018 — Imagine having a child with special needs being prevented from attending class each day, or your elderly parents being forced to constantly climb flights of stairs to eat meals?
