Spotlight: WordCamp Miami 2016

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.

Meet the Moderators: Phil Erb

In the last posts, we chatted with Chandra Maharzan and Jerry Bates, two moderators at WordPress.tv. We’d like to introduce a third volunteer on this team. Everyone, meet Phil Erb.


Meet the Moderators: Chandra Maharzan

In last week’s post, we talked to Jerry Bates, one of the moderators at WordPress.tv. Let’s continue our “Meet the Moderators” Q&A series with another member of this team, hailing all the way from Nepal: Chandra Maharzan.


Meet the Moderators: Jerry Bates

There are so many great videos created at WordCamps and WordPress meetups around the world. As mentioned in December, 441 WordCamp videos were published to WordPress.tv by the end of 2012! We want to ensure these talks, presentations, and tutorials are shared with as many people as possible.

So, we’re very excited about the new team of WordPress.tv moderators. We formed a team of volunteers to review and approve the video content uploaded to WordPress.tv to ensure accuracy and quality, and to moderate comments and engage with the community.

Here on the WordPress.tv blog, we’d like to introduce you to these moderators in a Q&A post series. These moderators are WordPress enthusiasts — just like many of you out there — and we want to share their stories about how they got involved with WordPress.

First up in our Q&A series? Jerry Bates.
