About the Event

WordPress Accessibility Day is a 24-hour single-track conference that will take place via Zoom from October 9-10. The event has 501(c)(3) nonprofit status through a partnership with Knowbility, a U.S.-based nonprofit focused on website accessibility. WordPress Accessibility Day is organized by a worldwide group of volunteers in the WordPress community.

The conference is dedicated to promoting accessibility best practices for WordPress websites. It includes presentations targeted to designers, developers, content creators, and others knowledgeable about building WordPress websites but who want to grow their accessibility knowledge. It is pre-approved for continuing education credits for the International Association of Accessibility Professionals Web Accessibility Specialist (WAS) and Certified Professional in Core Competencies (CPACC) certifications.

Check out the archive sites from the 2023 event and 2022 event to see what the conference is like.

How Sponsor Dollars Are Spent

Sponsors make WordPress Accessibility Day possible! Sponsorships cover the cost of running the event and making it accessible to everyone around the world, including people with disabilities. We’re also proud to be an event that pays our speakers to compensate them for their time and remove income barriers that might stop someone from applying to speak.

Here are some examples of what sponsorship dollars pay for:

  • Closed captioning during the event.
  • American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation during the event.
  • Corrected captions and transcripts on final videos.
  • Paying speakers.
  • Marketing software such as Mailchimp for email marketing and Buffer for scheduling social media posts.
  • Administrative technology costs such as website hosting, domain registration, Google Workspace, and Zoom Webinars.
