A Word From Our Developer and Accessibility Expert
In my two decades as an accessibility professional, I have learned over and over again about the impact of inclusivity and the importance of ensuring that the web is accessible for all. We at Simply Schedule Appointments are excited to be sponsoring WordPress Accessibility Day, an event that mirrors our own commitment to creating a web space that is inclusive and accessible to all.
In keeping with our values, we’ve carefully built Simply Schedule Appointments to meet WCAG 2.1 AA standards and we are proud to join forces with fellow accessibility advocates in supporting this 24-hour global event. We hope this event celebrates the activists who work every day to make the web a more accessible place while also acting as a call to action in the WordPress community.

The web should be accessible to all, and as a community with such an outsized presence on the web, we have so much power to move that cause forward. Simply Schedule Appointments is supporting as a sponsor this year, but I was one of the lead organizers of the inaugural event, and I am so glad to see the tradition carried on by a new group of organizers who are working for growth, understanding, and increased opportunity for all.
As the only fully accessible booking plugin for WordPress, we take great pride in leading the way in ensuring that everyone, regardless of their abilities, can easily book appointments on WordPress websites.
We will continue to champion accessibility in the WordPress ecosystem and work tirelessly to provide the best possible user experience for all. WordPress Accessibility Day serves as a reminder of the importance of accessibility in web development, and we are committed to being at the forefront of this movement, setting an example for others in the industry.
Together, we can make the web a more inclusive and accessible place for everyone!
