  • The team actualized the tasks for the next quarter
  • Crystal will work on improvements for the alt text and table captions
  • The GSoC project on the accessibility plugin is over, PRs merges and tests will be done in the next few weeks. Viviana had a meeting with Olivier and Shirielle, who want to include the improvements on the plugin in Joomla 4.3
  • We would like to have a webinar about using screen readers. Could be a part for the manual / a11y documentation
  • We would also like to make accessibility in Joomla more public, reach out conferences / magazines outside of the Joomla bubble (Carlos has submitted a session to a WordPress conference)
  • We discussed the possibility to add some automatic testing tool for checking accessibility on PRs, but sadly AXE linter doesn’t support PHP
  • Crystal talked about the new UX team (Joomla Experience Team) she is leading. JAT and JET will work closely together
  • Benjamin will reach out to GAAD foundation again to prepare the Joomla GAAD pledge
  • We discussed about the accessibility on 3rd party templates and how we can reach out template providers to sensitize them to accessibility
