WordPress accessibility in a page builder world
Matt Report | A WordPress Podcast For Digital Business Owners
by Matt Report & Matt Medeiros

Web accessibility was something I was afraid to discuss with clients, when I ran my agency. I didn't know much about it, where to begin, or how much time it would it take to implement the various practices. That fear steered me away from presenting it as part of a web design project. I'm not in the agency space anymore, but I know there's some of you out there faced with the same dilemma. Lucky for us, folks like Anne Bovelett advocate for both sides of the cause.
