I use a screen reader called JAWS (and sometimes NVDA) to browse the web and for updating my blog. It does a pretty good job of most things. But it can’t cope with WP’s visual editor. One consequence of which is that I can’t create image galleries or slideshows—at least, not by conventional means.
This post is based on lessons learnt from putting together a selection of my favourite viral images and outlines an accessible, do-it-yourself alternative to WP’s proprietary method for creating slideshows.
I realise this topic is mostly of academic interest these days, but I decided to archive an updated version of the post for posterity. And the fact that I put a lot of work into it, dammit! 😀
