Hello, are you interested in joining the Make WordPress Accessible team? Or are you just interested in finding out what we’re up to? This page explains a bit about what the team does and how you can help by getting involved.

Who are we? Who are we?

The Make WordPress Accessible team are volunteers who vow to ensure the continued improvement of accessibility in WordPress — with both the themes that power WordPress websites and the admin screens for site management.

Our team becomes stronger with every new person who gets involved — so won’t you join us?

Contrary to what some people think, we’re not all techies; and we feel everyone connected with accessibility has something useful to contribute. We especially want to hear from regular users of assistive technology (AT). Your perspectives are invaluable when we test accessibility fixes.

Each new version of WordPress brings accessibility improvements. The more debate and testing we can do, the faster changes can be made.
