While most web developers are not considering accessibility when they create websites, it looks like the entire community is going that direction.

The big step is that the WordPress Theme Review Team is working on a long term plan to make ALL WordPress.org themes accessible.

Why is that a big step when developers often aren’t using WordPress.org themes?

It is a big step because:

  1. It is a stake in the ground
  2. It raises awareness
  3. Many designers are not professional web developers
  4. Non WordPress.org theme developers will follow suit. While some are a ahead of the game the vast majority of themes out there (even premium themes) are not considering accessibility in a big way.
