Accessibility of common Gutenberg blocks

November 3, 2022 at 07:00 UTC

Much has been made over the last few years about the accessibility of the new WordPress editor from the perspective of a content creator in the WP admin screens. Well, this session is not about that – but it is about the accessibility of the web pages that are shown to site visitors when content creators have used some of the common Gutenberg blocks.

Does the HTML that WP core and block plugins give to a browser actually make sense to people using screen readers and other assistive tools?

In this session Graham will pick a few blocks and have a look under the bonnet at the code they generate.
