This week in WPA11y – July 24, 2017

Transcript of meeting.

The discussion of the handbook was punted to the July 31st, 2017 meeting, as @samikeijonen was unable to attend this week’s meeting. As this discussion was originally intended as the primary focus of this week’s meeting, the entire meeting was open floor, with no agenda.

Topics discussed

Gutenberg: block output

@afercia recommended we set up a test to review the output of all Gutenberg content blocks, as many of the new block types generate different output than the equivalent in the existing editor, such as the image gallery block.

@rianrietveld requested that @afercia create a post for testing that contains all relevant options.

We determined that we need to first perform an expert review of the general issues, request modifications as necessary, then gather user feedback once any major errors have been worked through.

The team briefly discussed the reasoning behind creating content blocks that generate features that exist in the current WordPress ecosystem using different output HTML; further conversation on this topic should probably land in relevant Gutenberg issues.

Gutenberg: user testing

@nicbertino volunteered to manage moderated user testing for Gutenberg, to start with general user testing, then proceed to specific testing with users requiring assistive technology.
