Related, there’s a lot of activity going on at the Make WordPress Accessible blog. Of note:
- Twenty Thirteen, the next default theme, has reached the stage in development where feedback is being requested specifically from an accessibility standpoint.
- The addition of an “accessibility mode” for the Custom Menus is being focused on for inclusion in the next version release.
- Captions are being added to WordPress.tv and input on this new feature is needed.
- Discussion concerning the accessibility of the new Add Media panel.
If you’re at all interested in the future of accessibility within WordPress, I strongly urge you to contribute by joining our group. Whether you are just starting out with WordPress, an advanced developer or somewhere in between, we value insight and assistance. Also, please remember we have weekly IRC meetings Wednesdays at 3 p.m. Eastern in #wordpress-ui, which you are welcome and encouraged to participate in.
