I will start this post by wishing Happy new year to all of you. Let’s make it better than the last one!
Today we will talk about the new WordPress editor, Gutenberg. Is it accessible?
If you’ve been reading my posts, You already know what’s a screen reader. If not, Don’t worry, you can look here.
Now that you know what a screen reader is, I will tell you that not all sites, applications, games and so on are accessible.
It’s a constant battle to convince developers to make accessibility a priority for their projects. For example, right now We are trying to get 3 mail services to make their product usable. We will keep you up to date if we manage to convince them that accessibility is important.
I’m done rambling, let’s get to the post!
In 6 December 2018, WordPress 5.0 was released, and together with it a new way of creating content: The new block based editor, Gutenberg.
Even before it’s release, there was a lot of controversy and complaint over the editor and it’s accessibility, and as a web developer, I had my curiosity picked. As soon as I heard about its release, I decided to give it a try.
This post is the result of my experience with the new editor.
