Wisconsin Council of the Blind & Visually Impaired serves individuals across Wisconsin. Their old Drupal-based website was difficult to maintain due to the coding skill required. This WordPress website project provided the Council with a new site that was easy to use for both the public and staff and delivered on accessibility.
The website was moved from the Drupal platform to WordPress using a lightweight theme and the Elementor builder so staff could easily administer the site in-house. The redesign included an overhaul of the navigation. The overall look was updated as well to include brand colors, easy-to-read fonts, iconography and inclusive photography.
This project required close collaboration with Council staff and a team of advocates for plugin accessibility testing; screen reader testing; and user testing and change implementation. This website also required custom coding. Old links were redirected to ensure continuity of content and maintain SEO value.
When the website was complete, I provided onsite training and written documentation to ensure staff had the skills necessary to handle ongoing content updates and maintenance needs.
