So it finally happened. I did a talk at the local WordPress meetup, Going Responsive with WordPress. If you’re here because you saw my talk and are interested in more information or the slides, you’re in the right place! And also, thank you for coming! If you missed the talk, but still want to look at the slides, you’re in the right place too!
I’m using reveal.js for my slides, and they can be found here: Making Responsive Sites Accessible For Everyone (slides).
If you’re interested in reading more on the subject, here are some more resources:

And as a bonus, this YouTube channel provides some interesting insights in how blind people tackle “menial” tasks in life. There are a number of iPhone videos in it that are particularly relevant to the subject. TommyEdisonXP’s YouTube channel
One of the questions was about resources that I’d recommend for further reading. The WCAG Overview is a good place to start. Furthermore, the talented people at the Paciello Group write a lot about the subject of accessibility. You’ll be able to find most of them on Twitter as well. Other blogs to follow are Simply Accessible, Usability Geek blog, and Joe Dolson’s blog. I’m sure there are more of them out there, so feel free to share them!
