Accessibility Proposal Feedback to Make Joomla 100% Accessible
Some of you may know of this project that I'm trying to initiate in the Joomla Community. There is a huge opportunity to capture a large portion of the Internet and power it with a 100% accessible CMS.
We have the initiative, we have the people with the right skills, we just need to confirm a plan and make it all happen.
I personally would love to hear feedback on the idea and the proposal that I have written so far to get the rest of the community behind it and create some action in the space.
