Nancy takes photos, shoots film, designs stuff, and tries not to be too pretentious about it. Her very first client was a woman in her eighties running a spectacularly successful cancer non-profit program…who didn’t really use email, let alone anything else. Nancy trained her to set-up and maintain a WordPress site.
Throughout undergrad she gave regular talks to prospective students and parents on the trials, tribulations, and triumphs of college. Now as both a web designer and filmmaker, she has realized that she’s teaching very similar lessons to many of her clients, especially those that haven’t worked much with visual design, on how to avoid the pitfalls of “en vogue” to create products that can withstand the test of rising and falling fashions in typography, photography, film, and design.
WCATL 2015 Session – Best Practices: Building Accessible Websites in WordPress
There are over 20 million blind adults in the United States, approximately 10% of whom use screen readers to access the internet. Likewise, roughly 8% of men and 0.5% of women have some form of color blindness. Many government contracts are beginning to require websites to be accessible and many companies who are not legally required to build accessible websites are starting to do it regardless. What goes into making a website accessible? How can you determine whether or not your website is? This presentation will discuss both tools and techniques that can help you build accessible websites.
