Announcing A Health Breakthrough

Today, LadderDesk™ is proud to announce a Kickstarter campaign to build the latest in health technology, the LadderDesk™. Science has documented the many health benefits of standing desks. LadderDesk™ improves on this proven concept using a technology specifically created for LadderDesk™ we’re calling Gravity™ to actually suck unhealthy vibes down and away from the body. Plus, users of the LadderDesk™ will benefit from cleaner air and a new outlook on life as they view the world from a new perspective. The LadderDesk™ is extremely portable as you can see from the action photo out in the Room With The Big Blue Ceiling. The model displayed in the photo, the LadderDesk™ Glass is also lightning-proof as it has fiberglass sides.

Disclaimer

Curiously enough, heavy weight operating systems don’t do well at the altitude at which the LadderDesk™ operates. Linux, for example, only made it to the first rung. We find that only ChromeOS or iOS are lightweight enough for the top of the LadderDesk™. For more info about LadderDesk™ Tweet @AccessibleJoe.

Cities Update

Nashville

Anna Belle Leiserson @faithandweb is finishing up work on Accessible Nashville, a congregational/church theme. Thanks Anna Belle!

Alexandria

David A. Kennedy @DavidAKennedy finished Accessible Zen which is now available in the WordPress Theme Directory. Accessible Zen is a minimalist theme, white with nearly black text and dark blue headings with one center column. A gravatar photo of the blog owner leads off the page which is cool. If you have a gravatar it will pull your picture automatically. A heading and subheading make up the rest of the header. Then there’s the center column with posts, followed by a footer with search and whatever you want to add with Widgets such as recent posts, recent comments, archives, etc. David is now starting work on Accessible Alexandria, a government theme.

Los Angeles

Joseph Karr O’Connor and the Los Angeles theme team is doing AUX research and gathering requirements for a business/ecommerce theme. If you have any requirements or features you’d like to see please let us know @AccessibleJoe.

Theme Check Process

The WordPress Accessibility team has created a new theme hashtag, accessibility-ready, and it will soon be part of WordPress core. The theme check team has already checked some themes and approved them according to Guidelines: Accessibility. One theme that passes is Twenty Fourteen, this year’s official WordPress theme.
