You Don’t Have To Be A Code Jockey To Begin Making Your Site Accessible

Adaptistration People 030Before the Thanksgiving holiday, I published an article at ArtsHacker about how website content managers can begin improving web accessibility by way of user-friendly tools to check color contrast.

The response from colleagues and readers was terrific and per those suggestions, I decided to expand this into an ongoing series focusing on all the content management related tasks you can do to improve web accessibility.

The good news is there are several areas that require little to no code skills and in the case of the most recent article, it’s simply a matter of developing good habits with how to use headers.

About Drew McManus

"I hear that every time you show up to work with an orchestra, people get fired." Those were the first words out of an executive's mouth after her board chair introduced us. That executive is now a dear colleague and friend but the day that consulting contract began with her orchestra, she was convinced I was a hatchet-man brought in by the board to clean house.

I understand where the trepidation comes from as a great deal of my consulting and technology provider work for arts organizations involves due diligence, separating fact from fiction, interpreting spin, as well as performance review and oversight. So yes, sometimes that work results in one or two individuals "aggressively embracing career change" but far more often than not, it reinforces and clarifies exactly what works and why.

In short, it doesn't matter if you know where all the bodies are buried if you can't keep your own clients out of the ground, and I'm fortunate enough to say that for more than 15 years, I've done exactly that for groups of all budget size from Qatar to Kathmandu.

For fun, I write a daily blog about the orchestra business, provide a platform for arts insiders to speak their mind, keep track of what people in this business get paid, help write a satirical cartoon about orchestra life, hack the arts, and love a good coffee drink.
