MMT Tech Meetup - November 2020 featuring Website Accessibility

Website Accessibility plays a big role in development these days and it is essential to make sure what you build is available and useable by everyone. Leaving key aspects out of your development process, like accessibility, can affect people accessing your content, which is not recommended. It should be considered best practice to make sure your site has basic accessibility features. The meetup below goes through some of the things you should be considering.

Meetup agenda:

  • Why be accessible? - (Graham Rees-Evans - Technical Manager, Consultant, and Training - Shaw Trust)
  • Common Accessibility mistakes - (Ilesh Mistry - CMS Specialist and Kontent MVP - MMT Digital)
  • How to use pa11y-ci to prevent accessibility issues? (Tomas Jakelis - Front-End Engineer - MMT Digital)
  • Using Persona Profiles for Accessible Websites (Nadia Rasul - Sr. Front-end Developer & Accessibility Lead - Reason One)
