WordPress Accessibility Showcase for Global Accessibility Awareness Day

May 16 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

WordPress Accessibility Showcase for GAAD on Thursday, May 16th, at 10 AM Central.

In honor of Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD), join us for a conversation about how different WordPress plugins and theme developers are working to improve and promote accessibility in their products.

Representatives from Accessibility Checker, CivicPress, Elementor, Gravity Forms, My Calendar, Popup Maker, and WP Accessibility will share how they are working on accessibility, what they’ve learned along the way, their future goals for accessibility, and resources if you want to learn more about building accessible sites with their products. Following the panel discussion, there will be time for open Q&A.

Whether you use these tools on your websites or are a WordPress product owner who wants to make your products more accessible, this is a GAAD event you don’t want to miss.

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