"The Accessible Editor Workshop" by Corey Vilhauer, from Now What? Workshops 2018 in Sioux Falls, SD, April 26, 2018

Your website's not just designed for your audiences: it's designed for everyone. Which means it needs to be accessible to everyone. Often, accessibility falls into the hands of back- and front-end developers. But just as important is the ongoing maintenance of content within the CMS - the headings and images and alt tags and simple verbiage used to communicate your brand's message: a message that deserves to be seen and heard by everyone. In this talk, we will dive into what we can do as editors to help fuel more accessible websites, separating the code from the content and making clear the responsibilities we all have in making sure the web is a better place for everyone.
