    Hiroki Saiki: 明日からできる自作テーマ・受託プロジェクトのアクセシビリティ入門2018

    WordCamp Ogijima 2018Speaker: Hiroki Saiki

    July 16, 2018 — Despite the enforcement of the “Act for Eliminating Discrimination Against People with Disabilities,” the actual workflow of web development has not, unfortunately, implemented the requirements properly. People find difficulty in changing how they develop things, due to various reasons.
    In this session Hiroki will share the best-practices in team development and theme coding, so that the audience can see it’s not a special and difficult task to implement them.

    一昨年の障害者差別解消法の施行以後、Webアクセシビリティに関する情報を日々目にするようになりました。では、それがWeb制作の現場に反映されているかというと、残念ながらまだまだと言わざるを得ません。いろいろな要因はあるにせよ、どうやらWebアクセシビリティの導入には高い障壁があるようです。

    本セッションでは、WordPressの自作テーマ制作やプロジェクト進行のアクセシビリティ対応のポイントを挙げながら、参加者(=制作者)にとってアクセシビリティ対応が特別なことではなく、難しいことでもないと認知していただくとともに、まずは簡単に対応でき、日々の制作に活かせる情報をお伝えすることを目的とします。

  • Kimberly Norris : Designing for Accessibility and Illiteracy

    Kimberly Norris : Designing for Accessibility and Illiteracy

    WordCamp Pittsburgh 2017Speaker: Kimberly Norris

    July 15, 2018 — According to the U.S. Department of Education and the National Institute of Literacy, 21 percent of adults in the U.S. read below a 5th grade level. While we are making great strides towards a web that is accessible to everyone, this population still remains largely under-served. How can we modify our understanding of “digital a11y” to include users with literacy challenges? This session will begin with a broad discussion of accessibility, for those who may be new to the topic, and then move into what we can do to meet the needs of specific users, with a focus on those who can’t read, read poorly, or read English as a second language. Participants will engage in a series of exercises designed to illustrate the importance of website accessibility, build empathy and understanding for multiple user communities, and develop skills to make more useful websites.
