Lend a Hand: Volunteers Needed for WP Accessibility Day

We have an upcoming event – do you want to contribute to the WordPress Community and its initiatives and accessibilityAccessibility Accessibility (commonly shortened to a11y) refers to the design of products, devices, services, or environments for people with disabilities. The concept of accessible design ensures both “direct access” (i.e. unassisted) and “indirect access” meaning compatibility with a person’s assistive technology (for example, computer screen readers).
