Spotlight: WordCamp Miami 2016

WordCamp Miami helped kick off the 2016 WordCamp season with sunny skies and great presentations on how to take your WordPress site to the next level. You can see all the WordCamp Miami sessions here, but below are a few that stood out for us.

Rachel Carden: Tools and Techniques for Evaluating Accessibility

When your website is accessible, all users can access your content no matter their abilities. Visually-impaired users can visit your website using a screen reader. Those who can’t use the mouse can navigate your site using a keyboard or other input device. Some accessibility features might also improve your SEO. When your site is inaccessible, research shows you could be excluding up to 20 percent of your users. This talk for all skill levels will review tools and techniques you can use to test and improve your site’s accessibility.
