  • Los Angeles-Long Beach, CA (1888PressRelease) December 02, 2019 - at November’s WordCamp Riverside 2019, Sumner Davenport presented a 90-minute fact-filled session on Web Accessibility. Afterwards, Ms. Davenport fielded questions for over an hour from web designers seeking solutions that they could give their clients. For the two weeks following the event Davenport received dozens of phone calls and emails with additional questions related to individual website problems.

    Although many questions asked of Ms. Davenport are regarding the recent Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) decision to not to hear the Dominos Web Accessibility case, and the ever growing list of lawsuits filed under lack of ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act ) compliance, she refuses to educate on ADA compliance. Although several business owners have recently been sued for their websites not being accessible to persons with disabilities and filed in part under ADA alleging disability discrimination, Davenport says “ADA is a law, and I am not a lawyer. I cannot tell you how, or if, you are compliant with any law. I can, however, direct you to information you can show you attorney so it can be explained to you properly. “ On the other hand,” Davenport continues, “ I can educate you on Web Accessibility and the Web Content Accessibility Guideline (WCAG) and how to make your website Accessible to all persons, including those with disabilities.”

    Davenport has been invited to speak at WordCamps throughout the year. WordCamp is a community-organized conference centered on the WordPress publishing platform. These events are organized, paid for, and attended by the local WordPress communities in accordance with the principles of the WordPress Foundation. More information about WordCamps is available on their website:
