I’m an accessibility consultant currently working with the crew at Intopia. I started out with the gang at Simply Accessible. I’ve been doing this for about 7 years now, and I really enjoy it. Before that I worked as a front-end developer specialising in e-learning.
If you have questions about digital accessibility, or need help with it, you can often find me at meetups - I attend the Fenders events regularly, as well as being a key member of the Perth Web Accessibility meetup.
I’ve recently been giving talks on accessibility at meetups and conferences. I try to keep my resources and videos up to date at Notist. You can watch a video of me speaking about CSS for low-vision users at CSSConfAU (on YouTube, with captions available) or giving a lightning talk on colour contrast at Collide in 2016.
If you want to learn more about accessibility, here’s the resources I use and love:
- A11y Project for code samples and basics
- Simply Accessible for good how-to articles
- Inclusive Design Patterns by Heydon Pickering, published by Smashing Magazine
- Accessibility For Everyone by Laura Kalbag, published by A Book Apart
- Color Accessibility Workflows by Geri Coady, published by A Book Apart
- Plus my own draft of an accessibility learning plan which shows one path you could take and what resources you’ll need.
