No matter how users get to your sites, they deserve an inclusive, accessible experience. A main navigation component built with accessibility in mind goes a long way towards this goal. Fortunately, WordPress leaves the implementation of accessibility best practices up to theme and plugin developers. This means that by carefully thinking about how to build a menu from the ‘ground up’, we can help all of our users use our sites better. Instead of relying on the default WordPress navigation menu functions, this presentation will demonstrate:
– The basics of menu accessibility
– How custom a WordPress Walker class can be used to create accessible markup
