About My Accessible Website
Hi, I'm Fiona and I'm Technical Director of a website and app development agency. I've been a full stack web developer for about 12 years now.
I wrote a blog post about accessibility on my old developer blog in 2015 and it was really popular, so I decided to learn more about it.
I already had a decent amount of experience making sites accessible, as my first web development role was making software for schools, which has to meet WCAG Level AA.
My aim with this site is to provide guidance to help developers make their sites more accessible.
This would be a much more interesting story if I required assistive technology myself or had a close family member that did. In fact, I just feel like it is a very neglected aspect of software development that has the potential to make lives easier.
I also have one of the highest rated courses on Pluralsight.
The course starts with an inaccessible web form and steps through each of the changes necessary to make it accessible. It includes an intro to testing with free screen reader software.Go to Pluralsight »
