Accessibility, Get on The Bus or Get Under The Bus.
--

Glen will explain what web accessibility (WCAG 2.1) is and why it is so important we understand it and be compliant. People with disabilities ranging from blindness, deafness, dyslexia and others may navigate and consume content in different ways with assistive technology. Web accessibility is not just for developers, it is just as important for marketers to make it part of their digital marketing to ensure that opportunities for success aren’t missed. When 1 in 5 people have short or long term disability, creating accessible websites can increase your conversions by 20% by being accessible.

This is our OFFICIAL "General Users" Monthly WordPress meetup. The skill levels vary & conversation on every level is welcomed.

We do not go into extreme depth with this meetup but offer it as an induction into the "WorldWide" WordPress community and more general WordPress questions. On some months we will have a topic specific night with guest presenters.

All are welcome to present & if you would like to do this then fill out the SPEAKER REQUEST (https://inlandempirewp.com/speaker-request/) ( https://inlandempirewp.com/speaker-request/ ) form at our meetup website.
