June 19 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

go theme by godaddy accessibility audit

Join us as Alex Stine, Engineer & Accessibility Consultant, and Amber Hinds, CEO of Equalize Digital, perform a live accessibility audit of the Go Theme by Go Daddy and provide real-time feedback to Senior Software Developer at GoDaddy, Evan Herman.

The presentation will demonstrate how to manually audit WordPress themes for accessibility while providing real-time feedback to help the GoDaddy team improve their theme. In addition to identifying areas of improvement, Alex and Amber will provide recommendations for fixes.

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 via Zoom.

About Alex Stine and Amber Hinds

Alex got his start in Web Development thanks to WordPress by starting off in Tech Support, moving into Accessibility Development, and finally managing the underlying infrastructure that WordPress self-hosted sites run on. Not long after starting in Tech Support, Alex lost what vision he had and is now completely blind. This was the single event that motivated him to enter the accessibility world. Helping others have the same access to information.

Amber is the CEO of Equalize Digital, a certified B corp specializing in WordPress accessibility and maker of the Accessibility Checker plugin. She is the lead organizer of our meetup.

About Go Theme by GoDaddy

Go is an innovative, Gutenberg-first WordPress theme, hyper-focused on empowering makers to build beautifully rich websites with WordPress.
