Creating an Accessible WordPress Site

AccessibilityOz had just released the Rooted in Rights website, a fully accessible WordPress site which won the Australian Web Award for Accessibility. Gian Wild talks about how to make a site accessible to people with disabilities and compliant with U.S. regulations, including WCAG 2.0. Incorporating accessibility into your website build is important and can often mean the difference between an accessible and an inaccessible site at launch. Specific stages require accessibility intervention, including design, template, and final site launch. Suitable tasks and training are also covered.
