Hi Ann!


There are some accessibility advantages when you have your own domain as opposed to a free domain hosted at  I use; and they have a one-click install of WP.  I will not go into these accessibility advantages here, but there are more than a few.  Plus, having your own domain and a hosted site gives you full control, more flexibility and it is pretty inexpensive.

Is it necessary to use a paid Wordpress account or is creating free Wordpress sites just as accessible with Jaws?

And any specific Wordpress book recommendations?

Hi Thabo!


I have used WordPress, Drupal and learned some HTML.  For sure, WP is the best.  Learning some HTML is helpful too, but not critical.  Drupal seems to be more of an enterprise CMS.  WP can do it all; accessibly too.  Use its “classic editor.”  Get a book on using WP from Bookshare.

 Good day friends!


Thank you for adding me to the mailing list. This is my first post to the group, and I am excited, I can have my inquiries head. 


 I have never created a website before, and I want to learn how to do it. Where can I start? Is the place accessible with jars? Some people were telling me that I should use notepad, how is that effective?


Thank you for all the suggestions in advance!


Best regards
