Accessibility and Websites - Svetlana Kouznetsova at WordPress NYC Meetup at NYU Poly NYC on Oct 16 2012
Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the world wide web, said: "The power of the Web is in its universality. Access by everyone regardless of disability is an essential aspect." The internet is definitely one of the best things that happened to people with disabilities. However, there are still many websites that are not accessible to those visitors because they are not designed or coded properly to be used effectively even with assistive technologies. This presentation covers the basics of accessibility and explains why it benefits everyone, regardless of disabilities, and even website owners.
Svetlana Kouznetsova (Sveta) is a NYC-based web professional with a BFA in Graphic Design, an MS in Internet Technology, and over a decade of project experience with national/international organizations and non-profit/educational institutions.
