The combination web development and accessibility is my passion.
For a wide range of clients I train the people involved in a web project. Before and during the build of a web project I review, consult and research, to make the project as accessible as it can be for all visitors and users.
- At the moment I work as an accessibility consultant for the full service WordPress agency Level Level. I work on client projects and train my colleagues.
- For Humanmade.com I worked on client projects like News UK and helped with the rebuild of the company website. At the moment Human Made is hiring me through Level Level for consultancy.
- For the Genesis Framework I did an accessibility overhaul to make it WCAG 2.0 AA compliant. Tenon.io mentioned Genesis as the most accessible WordPress framework in their research in 2018.
Training web accessibility
- In 2018 we started the Level Level Academy. Here I give a series of workshops about good practice for designers, developers and content creators.
- In 2015 – 2017 I gave in-company workshops for Team Yoast, Yard Internet, Stuurlui, Human Made en Geev vorm.
- Oogvereniging.nl (Dutch site): WordPress theme for the Dutch Eye Association. This website is approved WCAG 2.0 AA accessible by the Dutch Accessibility Foundation.
- Game-accessibility.com: WordPress theme for this portal for gamers and developers about the accessibility of digitale serious games, commissioned by the Dutch Accessibility Foundation.
Open source contribution
In 2016 Knowbility gave me the Heroes of Accessibility Award for Individual Achievement for my contributions to WordPress.
