Shiny Updates Review

Hello Accessibility Group!

@joedolson was so kind to look over Shiny Updates a few months ago, but since then a lot of improvements have made it into the plugin and we feel it could benefit from another Accessibility review. We’d like to have Shiny Updates in the best shape it can be before it gets merged and would appreciate it if you could look through the latest version of the plugin and see if there is anything that can be improved there.

If you do encounter issues, it would be great if you could file those on GitHub for us to fix them.

Our next chat will be on Tuesday, May 17 at 19:00 UTC in #feature-shinyupdates, in case you have questions or want to discuss any aspect of Shiny Updates. We’re also around to answer questions outside of that of course, please feel free to let us know.

Thank you!
