🗣️ 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.
Our attendees come from Hampshire and West Sussex. All levels of experience of WordPress and website publishing welcome. We are a learning and development group. We welcome WordPress beginners.
🏕️ MORE ABOUT THE SPEAKER
Graham is the founder of Coolfields Consulting, which focuses on web accessibility, website design and development.
