  • WordPress Bournemouth July Meetup - Designing for Accessibility

    📣 Designing for Accessibility with Graham Armfield The accessibility of a website is significantly affected by the underlying HTML, CSS and javascript that developers use to create it. But it is also possible to impact upon the accessibility of a site at the design stage - both the visual design, and the interactive design or UX. And it's not just about colour schemes either. In this presentation I will outline a few key points to keep in mind when you are designing your next beautiful website or theme. I will illustrate the points with some good (and bad) examples. Good design and web accessibility can go hand in hand - come and find out how. As always if you've got any burning questions or a problem you just can't seem to solve we're now dedicating half an hour from 7.15pm for open questions and discussion relating to WordPress. 6.30pm - Doors open 6.45pm - Pizza & Drinks 7.15pm - Open floor, questions 7.45pm - Talk 🍕 The meetup is a free event.
