WordPress Accessibility Meetup: Accessibility Audits for Large Websites: Strategies for Organization, Prioritization and Balance with Natalie MacLees on Monday, October 16 at 7 PM Central

Are you overwhelmed at the prospect of conducting accessibility audits for large websites that have numerous pages? In this talk, we’ll cover strategies for efficiently planning and conducting audits for large-scale sites, including WordPress sites with hundreds or thousands of posts, pages, WooCommerce products, and other types of content. We’ll explore how to stay organized and track progress throughout the project, including techniques to streamline your testing efforts, making informed trade-offs, and striking a balance between automated, manual, and functional testing approaches.

We’ll cover how to track and record accessibility issues effectively and how to organize issues to help remediation efforts go as smoothly as possible. Join us to build your skills toward helping create inclusive websites that leave nobody behind.

These meetups take place via Zoom and are live captioned. You must register to attend via Zoom.
