WordPress is used by over 20% of the world's websites. But how many accessible themes are there in the WordPress theme repository?
The answer is, "not many".
This presentation tries to demystify the recently introduced accessibility-ready tag within the theme review process. It's a tag that WordPress theme authors can use to indicate that their theme has good accessibility features. It's actually not that hard to achieve, and the web will be a better place if there were more accessibility-ready themes for people to choose from.
I also look at the impact WordCamp plugins can have on accessibility, and talk about whether the accessibility-ready principles could be used by plugin authors. The short answer, is that yes they can be useful.
