PubPub aims for WCAG 2.1 AA and ATAG compliance across its tools for content creation, management, and presentation. We take accessibility seriously; this means that we design our product to be usable across input and presentation modalities, including keyboards and screen readers. It also means recognizing that the Web as a platform largely neglects the needs of users with disabilities and that we do not presume that we can ever fully meet them without exceptional attention and care. To that end, we conduct periodic accessibility audits; we dedicate development time to improving accessibility on PubPub, and we accept and prioritize feedback on accessibility provided for instance via [email protected], our Github Issues tracker, or on Twitter.
