The European Union has Web Accessibility Directive coming into force soon and it affects basically all public sector web pages. I don’t know what this could mean for Aurelia, but some ideas:
- Add accessibility testing tooling setup to the CLI.
- Add testing infrastructure for accessibility regarding Aurelia. Maybe indicate somehow visually what specific points have been considered and tested.
- Add sections about accessibility to documentation to this forum and elsewere.
- Show notes about being mindful about accessibility in appropriate places? It might annoy, might have value as signaling.
- Maybe this affects plugins etc. too if they’re becoming a part of Aurelia core offering?
The core developers are probably overwhelmed as-is already, but maybe this could be something the Aurelia project want to be signaling and paying attention about. I could imagine anything related to public sector websites consider:
- Long term viability of the stack used (e.g. can web components be used, the framework and tools).
I tried to find what DOs and DONT DOs there are, a checklist or something, but couldn’t find any. Maybe something to start gathering?
- New public sector websites must conform by September 23 2019
- All public sector websites by September 23 2020
- All public sector mobile apps by June 23 2021
<edit: Worth mentioning here is also
I.e. worth mentioning regardless of EU.
