WordPress Accessibility Meetup. Documenting Accessibility Issues During an Audit: Monday, February 20th at 7 PM CST. Shows speaker Raghavendra Satish Peri.

Join us as Raghavendra Satish Peri, founder of DigitalA11Y, certified Professional in Web Accessibility (CPWA), and screen reader user, shares his approach to website accessibility auditing and how he documents problems found so that developers and content creators can fix them. In this presentation, Ragavendra will test a real website, discuss problems he finds, and demonstrate his process for documenting problems in a spreadsheet format.

If you’re considering adding manual accessibility testing to your service offerings, this talk will provide a peek into one professional’s approach with takeaways that you can apply in your own auditing business.

This meetup is part of a series where we provide live feedback to WordPress plugin and theme developers. Our goal with these meetups is to provide useful feedback to developers so they can improve the accessibility of their products and, in turn, all of the websites that use them. Want your product tested? Contact an organizer.

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