It’s important that content meets accessibility standards, however many people don't know what guidelines to follow and aren’t aware of Drupal’s content accessibility tools. A few simple tips will help anyone writing content meet accessibility standards (WCAG) and ensure content is accessible for everyone.

This session will outline content accessibility best practices including page titles, text links, headings, and making content easy to understand. We’ll then go on to look at Drupal tools and modules, such as editoria11y and SiteImprove, that you can use to improve your site’s accessibility.
