There’s a lot that goes into writing good microcopy for accessibility: Identifying what needs it, writing for something spoken aloud versus read silently, and finding a champion to help you develop it.

Join Portland Accessibility and User Experience Meetup (PDX A11Y UX, https://www.meetup.com/Portland-Accessibility-and-User-Experience-Meetup/) for a co-meetup with Portland UX Writers (https://www.meetup.com/Portland-UX-Writers-Meetup/). Kate Knappett and Josh Hetrick will share guidelines and tips and try them out in a group activity. Together, we’ll find solutions to make your writing more accessible and help you become an accessibility champion on your team.
