Why is accessibility important
Accessibility is an essential part of an inclusive user experience. Improving accessibility by removing barriers will simplify the usage of TYPO3 for everyone.
To support editors, information on accessibility issues should be given on editing elements. We could highlight missing alternative texts for images. Additionally helping information on how to write a good alternative text can be given. Editors need to be aware of accessibility. Then should be guided in creating accessible webcontent.
The Backend accessibility
The user interface of the authoring tool is not accessible yet. Firstly we set a focus on keyboard interaction. In addition the layout and the design as well as a consistent usage of interactive elements needs to be in focus.
The frontend is the most important part for the audience of a website. Delivering an accessible frontend is already possible with TYPO3. However we still want to improve and update the default rendering.
