The WordPress Helsinki meetup group aims to bring people of all skill levels together, from beginners to WordPress professionals.

This month, Sami Keijonen from Foxland (https://foxland.fi/) will come and share ideas about creating accessible content:

"Using accessible ready theme is a good start for creating accessible website. But plugins and your content can mess that up. In this meetup we explore how to write accessible content."

Sami’s talk will walk you through different content types, such as headings, links and media files, give you general tips and tricks on how to write better content and how to make it accessible to search engines and people with disabilities.

The talk will be more of an open discussion so you will be able to present your questions during the presentation. Drinks and snacks will be provided by Frantic (https://frantic.com/).
