Coming Up: Full-Day Virtual Workshop on WordPress Accessibility

August 7, 2019 · 9:30 AM to 2:30 PM CT

As an open-source content management system, WordPress is a practical and popular platform to manage your organization’s digital presence or promote your organization’s goals. While it has many accessible features out-of-the-box, a lot can happen in design, development, and content entry that hinder, rather than help, with accessibility.

In this full-day workshop with Knowbility's Technology Director, Robert Jolly, you will dive into the current state of accessibility in WordPress and get a look at WordPress’ out-of-the-box accessibility features and examine over a dozen of its most common accessibility issues.
