WordPress Accessibility Day

Our Commitment to Web Accessibility

WP Accessibility Day is committed to providing a fully accessible website experience for all users of all abilities, including those who rely on assistive technologies like screen readers, screen enlargement software, and alternative keyboard input devices to navigate the web.

Ongoing Efforts to Ensure Accessibility

We follow the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) version 2.2 as our guiding principle for determining accessibility. These are internationally agreed-upon standards that cover a wide range of recommendations and best practices for making content useable. As we add new pages and functionality to our website, all designs, code, and content entry practices are checked against these standards.

Website accessibility is an ongoing process. We continually test content and features for WCAG 2.1 Level AA compliance and remediate any issues to ensure we meet or exceed the standards. Testing of our website is performed by our team members using industry-standard tools such as the Accessibility Checker WordPress Plugin, axe Pro, WAVE, color contrast analyzers, keyboard-only navigation techniques, VoiceOver, JAWS, and NVDA screen readers, and Flesch-Kincaid readability tests.

During the conference, we will have live captioning available for all presentations and American Sign Language Interpretation. After the event is over, we’ll provide recordings of sessions with corrected captions and a full transcript.

It is our goal to make everyone’s experience with WP Accessibility Day a welcoming and enjoyable one. Please note that while we make every effort to provide information accessible to all users, we cannot guarantee the accessibility of third-party websites to which we may link.
