Accessibility Team Update: Sept 2

The accessibility team is still focusing on a global accessibility statement for WordPress and hopes to have a draft available for open discussion shortly. The theme access audits are now in a position to go “live” and we will be liaising with the Theme Review team on this over the next week or so.

After 18 months as team rep, I’m standing down. Joseph O’Connor offered to take this role on and his offer was accepted by the team during the recent IRC meetup. I’ll be working with him during the handover period. In the meantime, we will be continuing to monitor current Trac tickets such as #24766 and the Features as Plugins Tracking list (thanks to Sam Sidler for giving us the heads up on this).
