  • Graham Armfield: Designing for Accessibility

    Graham Armfield: Designing for Accessibility

    WordCamp Manchester 2017Speaker: Graham Armfield

    December 12, 2017 — 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, WordCamp Edinburgh and a couple of WP meetup groups.

    In this talk I will give you an overview of useful test tools, how to use them and how to integrate testing your development workflow. Also, I will give you tips on additional testing that can’t be automated, like using your site with only keyboard.

    María Carmen de Alba: Ponte en mi lugar y hazlo fácil

    WordCamp Chiclana 2017Speaker: María Carmen de Alba

    October 8, 2017 — Quiero animaros a que vengáis no sólo a disfrutar de mi ciudad, que por supuesto, tiene su encanto contando con la playa y los preciosos atardeceres en la Barrosa, con sus tapitas, su gente y su arte que después de todo el lío nos desmadraremos un poco. Tengo más peligro que una caja de bombas, no liarme mucho eh? ¡Avisados estáis!

    Mª Carmen, que te lías…

    Veeenga vale, ya voy en serio. Quiero animaros a venir con ganas de aprender y a ser un poquito más humanos y a ser más empáticos, porque con independencia de nuestra profesión o de si sabemos más o menos sobre algo, todo se mueve por las personas. ¡Uno para todos y todos para uno!

    Siempre me gusta mencionar una frase de la película de Forrest Gump: “La vida es como una caja de bombones, nunca sabes lo que te va a tocar”. Por eso es importante valorar las cosas.

    Espero que disfrutéis de la ponencia sobre accesibilidad web y que aprendáis de todo lo que os voy a contar.

  • Thomas Villain: Un design accessible

    Thomas Villain: Un design accessible

    WordCamp Marseille 2017Speaker: Thomas Villain

    September 27, 2017 — L’accessibilité numérique, c’est proposer aux internautes en situation de handicap, que ce soit au niveau moteur, visuel, auditif ou cognitif, un accès au web et une navigation optimale quel que soit leur équipement.

    On pense parfois (quand on y pense) que l’accessibilité est un ensemble de techniques à mettre en place au moment de l’intégration et du développement… mais non 🙂 En réalité, intégrer le concept d’accessibilité commence dès la conception et le design graphique !

    Nous verrons comment se préparer une checklist pour tous ses projets : style guide, avec notamment le design des éléments de formulaires et leurs différents états, les contrastes des couleurs, l’utilisation des images, des pictogrammes, les menus d’évitement…

    Ainsi, dès l’ouverture de Sketch, Photoshop, Affinity Designer ou de votre outil préféré, n’oubliez plus les fondamentaux de l’accessibilité. Au niveau de l’intégration et du développement, nous verrons comment intégrer à notre workflow les bonnes pratiques et mettre en application le design accessible qui aura été préparé.
