Write-up of event: http://www.hook42.com/blog/september-a11y-meetup-review

We have all heard about website accessibility and know what it means in a broad sense, but what does website accessibility look like in a practical sense?

In this A11Y talk, Scott O'Hara will address questions like:
- How do I get started in a11y?
- How do I get my team to care about it?
- Where does one start in trying to incorporate a11y into the work they or their team produce?
- Who is in charge of a11y at your company anyway?

Although Scott may not have all the answers, he hopes that by just asking these questions it will jump-start the conversation at your own company/team and more people will become involved in website accessibility.

Change format of virtual meeting

Hello Carie,

I really appreciate you putting together these meetings, it is really great to connect to others trying to make Drupal sites more accessible.

Last month many people were not able to get into the Google Hangout to partake fully in this meeting. I have a professional Zoom license and would love to talk more about hosting a Zoom meeting so that everyone can fully participate in the upcoming meetings.

If this is something you would be interested in, please let me know, and we can talk about the details out of this forum.

Best,

Samm Delorey
