Accessible Content for Muggles: 10 Action Steps to Create Accessible Content with Paola Gonzalez on Thursday, August 1 at 10 AM Central.

Meet me at Platform and ¾ to hop on the accessibility express. Step into the magical world of content creation with the block editor and discover how to wield the powers of Gutenberg to create accessible websites. You don’t have to be a wizard to make your content accessible to all.

In this session, you’ll learn how to leverage the native features of the block editor and block-enabled plugins to enhance accessibility with minimal effort. Paola will provide 10 actionable strategies to ensure your content adheres to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), enhance user experience, and broaden your audience reach.

Key takeaways include accessibility basics, ways to leverage Gutenberg for better accessibility and free WordPress plugins to streamline your content creation process. By the end of this session, you’ll be equipped with the knowledge and tools necessary to transform your standard WordPress content into a fully accessible experience.

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