I responded to this issue on GitHub in good faith, but I can’t stop emphasising YOU NEED TO PAY PEOPLE TO DO THE WORK RIGHT. If you want to do better at covering disability and accessibility, pay a disabled consultant to help you.
Relying on "the community" might get you some nice advice from well-meaning people, but be aware that "the community" is limited to those who can afford to/have free time to participate (and I’ll bet those are mostly non-disabled people.)
@laura I think the social model of disability is really useful in framing things like this. None of us are born with the ability to parse HTML from a computer on the other side of the world directly into our minds. By building things that can only be accessed by specific bodies you are making others disabled.
The more I read messages from Laura, the more obvious it is they are actually connected to the real world reality (crazy i feel i need to use this redundancy to make a point) of tech development.
A somewhat rare thing, lets hope it becomes less so, thereby giving FOSS a future.
