IRC Meeting: May 22, 2013

Another small but busy IRC meeting on #wordpress-ui where discussion focused on assessing the site for possible accessibility issues.

If you have a little spare time, please do try to contribute to the site feedback request. Any observation — no matter how small — is valuable. If you need some ideas on what to look for, please check out our Site Feedback Guide.

Site Feedback Request

We have been approached by the folks over at They are keen to ensure that it is accessible as possible and would like our help to identify any problems with the current site.

So please take a little time, between May 17 & May 31, to have a look at and give us your feedback via comments on this post. In order to support you and provide some structure to the feedback, we’ve prepared a Site Feedback Guide that should help.

We look forward to your contributions.

IRC Meetings

Just a quick post to remind everyone that we are still holding a weekly IRC meeting in #wordpress-ui every Wednesday at 19:00 UTC.

The meeting on May 1 covered the variations in form handling across different screen readers as well as a recent issue reported with the Jetpack plugin. As a result of the latter discussion, we now have a representative on the Jetpack Beta Group and Trac ticket #1710 has been created.

On the May 8 meeting, discussion centred on the draft Site Feedback Guide. The guide is intended to both add structure to any site feedback as well as provide some support for non-technical disabled users who would like to join in. We hope to test the guide out later this month.
