WordPress Accessibility


From: Michael Bullis
Date: Aug 7, 2019 1:09PM

My organization is contemplating whether to move our website from html to
WordPress for the reason that we would much more easily be able to update
information in real time.

We absolutely cannot and do not wish to create anything that is less
accessible than we currently have.

1. Does anyone have advice on what we ought to consider prior to making
such a move?
2. Are there consulting companies that really know the accessibility
themes in WordPress we should consider hiring in order to put a correct
foundation on our site?
3. I hear some stories about WordPress introducing inaccessible editors
that might become a problem. Is that so, and, how can we avoid problems?

And finally,

4. Are there reasons why we should just stick to html and not put
ourselves through the headache of WordPress?

Thanks to all on this list. I am a lurker for many years and consistently
find this list delivers high value content.
