– Hey all, my name is Kori Ashton. Today I’m gonna be showing you a free generator tool that’s gonna help you create and write an accessibility statement for your WordPress website. Let’s get to it. So first of all, what is web accessibility and why is it important to us? It means that your website and the tools and technologies are all being designed and developed so that people with disabilities can use them. So anybody can come to your website and easily and quickly navigate, check out, read, watch, listen. Whatever we’re giving, whatever we’re trying to engage with on our website, we wanna build it in such a way that anybody can actually use those tools, access our website and be able to function easily and quickly through our website. Accessibility is actually gaining a lot of popularity these days, and not always as a willing addition to a website, companies are getting sued, so I would definitely recommend that you pay attention and that you work toward compliance on your own website. If you really don’t understand what accessibility is, I have a video that I did back in 2019. I’ll put a link to it here that explains a lot more of what accessibility is, how you can be compliant and a couple other resources and tools. If you’d like to go check that out, please do so. But if you have been working on your accessibility for your website, it is important that you actually have a statement. I’ll show you a quick example of what I’m using on Ask Kori. It’s very straightforward, very simple, but I didn’t write all this by myself. I wanted to use a tool to do this. You’re gonna have your blanket statement of this is who we are. This is our conformance status of what level we’re trying to conform to and then other considerations, and then of course contact information and feedback information.
So I hope you’re able to take time to really understand what accessibility is and the importance of it and everything that we’re doing digitally, whether it’s on your website or even just throughout in your social media, your blog, anywhere else that you’re trying to communicate online.
