    Has anyone tested the accesskeys in the HTML editor whilst using AT software such as JAWS? I’m really concerned about all of those non-numeric shortcut keys.

    If you’ll be at SXSW this year, RSVP to come to the WordPress party on the 12th! Snacks, booze, WordPress people, what more could you ask for? No SXSW required, just an RSVP.

    Also, if anyone wants to volunteer at the booth to help people with their sites/answer questions, get in touch with Rose, who is coordinating the booth.

      What about keyboard navigation on primary menu with dropdown submenu ? I think this is a primary issue for accesibilty. I’m testing wp 3.4-alpha-20205, but there isn’t any enachment on main menu.
      In my opinion css cannot use display:none for submenus because also screen readers don’t read submenus in this way
      my 2 cents

        Kind of late getting here, but would also like to be a part of the WP accessibility initiative. Background in SEO and started doing WCAG 2.0 accessibility consulting over the past year.
