Carrying on from my presentation at WPSYD2012, where I introduced Inclusive Design to an enthusiastic audience, this presentation aims to be more specific about how to apply accessibility principles across the WP spectrum, for designers, content authors and developers. I will present specific methods for creating accessible content and keeping it accessible, particularly for eCommerce, government and transactional sites.
Joseph Ortenzi has been making web sites since 1994, and remains keen on riding the technological wave. Schooled at the University of View Source, he majored in innovation and mistakes, in equal measure, before seeing the light of usability, web standards, user-centred design and universal, inclusive design.
A WordPress user since Charles Mingus (v1.2), a fan since Ella Fitzgerald (v2.1), and a zealot since John Coltrane (v2.7) Joe also likes tinkering under the WP hood to find better ways to do more with less code. Joseph is the founder of the London Web Standards Group, organiser of webBlastSYD, and presenter wherever a projector is available, like OZeWAI, WordCamp Sydney, and the Open Source Developers Conference. Joe is an Interaction Designer in Sydney, elbow deep in inclusive design and accessible, universal strategies and assisting both innovative start-ups and established multi-nationals see the benefits of design before developing.
