WordPress provides you with a decent head start when it comes to creating accessible websites. There are still plenty of items to check off your list to ensure that everyone has access to your site’s navigation and content. How can we be sure we understand the value of Accessibility when it comes to our projects?
Join us in welcoming Jessica Setter who is passionate about Design and Accessibility for our mobile worlds. She specializes in solutions bridging problems with art.
This talk is based on her current work in Accessibility Design. She will use visual examples then discussing the importance of conceptualizing accessibility early on when planning platforms. In between examples holding moments to ask people what differences there may be and how those differences affect the results of using a platform.
Jessica is a Graphic Designer from Southeast Michigan. After obtaining a BFA from Kendall College of Art and Design in Grand Rapids, MI, she works in Graphic Design at Owens Corning, and as a UI/UX Design Freelancer.

UX Clinic: Card Sorting
For the July Toledo Web Professionals meeting, we are trying something different. Instead of just meeting to eat, drink and socialize, or having a discussion, we will be hosting a "clinic" where attendees get to learn a user experience method.
The method for July will be Card Sorting, based on the Rosenfeld Media book by Donna Spencer. See http://rosenfeldmedia.com/books/cardsorting/ for more information about the book and a lot of supporting material for card sorting.
See http://www.meetup.com/Toledo-Web-Design/events/58206902/ for details about the clinic and parking information.
If you have never done card sorting before, you will learn some of the basics and be able to apply it to one of your future projects. If you are a veteran card sorter, we would still like you to attend to share your experiences with the other attendees.
THANKS TO SEED FOR HOSTING THE MEETING!
