WordPress Portsmouth Meetup – 17 Apr 2019 – Useful Accessibility Tools

Useful Accessibility Tools with Graham Armfield, Coolfields Consulting.

Join web developer Graham Armfield to discover a selection of browser tools you can use for testing particular aspects of your website’s accessibility. He will include examples of how you can help make your sites easier for users who only have keyboard navigation access.

He will also demonstrate to attendees a WordPress plugin which can be used to fix some common accessibility problems found in a number of themes.

Graham is the founder of Coolfields Consulting, which focuses on web accessibility, website design and development. We are delighted that he has agreed to share his knowledge with our MeetUp group and travel from his Surrey base. He has more than 15 years experience of web development and for more than 10 years has advised on web accessibility. He has delivered presentation to WordCamps across the UK and is a member of the Make WordPress Accessible group. He predominantly uses WordPress as his Content Management System (CMS) and this will make our event even more useful for both beginner and more experienced WordPress users.
