Good afternoon all,

A colleague just asked me to take a look at a Web site her organization has, where they have a newsletter using something called Sway. I admit I haven't encountered anything done with Sway before so I don't have any knowledge of if its content can be made accessible. At least in the newsletter they have in their test environment, I could read the first article, but couldn't found a way to move to any other article.

I have seen a couple demos of Sway, and the content was accessible. However, they were demos, and part of their reason for being was to demonstrate accessibility. So, I don't know how hard it is to create accessible content in Sway, how badly you could break accessibility, and whether or not the creation process, back-end is accessible or not.

Sorry I don't know more!

Dave
