ADA Compliance - Making Your Website Accessible
Why is ADA (The Americans with Disabilities Act) Compliance important for the web? What tools are available to check my level of compliance? What organizations are affected by these standards? ADA and web accessibility is going to be a highly requested need by clients in the non-profit and government sector of web design. The focus of this presentation is to use a platform like WordPress and how you can mold it to meet accessibility standards. Keep in mind these techniques are in a way a train of thought, and may also be applied when developing code, plugins, or applications. While the ADA still doesn’t technically apply to non-federal organizations with less than 15 employees – the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) has been stepping up its enforcement of the ADA in recent year. The DOJ encourages organizations to use the WCAG 2.0 level AA technical requirements as a guide for digital accessibility. Dylan Wages has been designing websites since the 1990s and building brands since the early 2000s. As a web developer, Dylan has designed numerous sites and is well versed in a number of web design principles and techniques – from user experience to conversion-focused design. Over the past few years Dylan has been focusing on web development for the non-profit sector. This experience has helped him create a deeper knowledge into subjects like ADA & PCI compliance standards. TELL A FRIEND Bring co-workers, friends, and anyone else you think would benefit.

    What we're about

    Public Group

    1. WordPress Meetups are for the benefit of the WordPress community as a whole, not specific businesses or individuals. All actions that I take as an organizer are with the best interest of the community in mind.

    2. Membership in the local meetup group is open to all who wish to join, regardless of ability, skill, financial status or any other criteria.

    3. Meetups are volunteer-run with volunteer speakers. In cases where a modest attendance fee might be necessary, this fee should only cover the costs of the meetup and shouldn’t be used to pay speakers or organizers.

    4. Meetup groups allow events to be organized by any reliable/trusted member of the community.

    5. Meetups are welcoming places where everyone works to foster an accepting environment which is free of discrimination, incitement to violence, promotion of hate, and general jerk-like behavior.
