What are you most looking forward to at WordCamp Toronto?
Meeting other WordPress developers and learning from them, not just the speakers.
Why did you decide to speak?
Because I have seen too few presentations on accessibility at previous events, WordCamps and otherwise. Often, those presentations get the information wrong.
What is your favourite plugin or theme, and why?
WP Accessibility, because it helps walk you through making your WP site friendlier to those with special needs.
