The topic of WordPress Accessibility has come up many times on the
WebAIM list. As a result, I thought some of you might be interested
in the general activity on this site, as well as this specific post.

From Twitter:

MT @wordpress keyboard access/screen reader users: weigh in on how
Tabbing & Enter should work in the dashboard. http://t.co/sOYOTj2M #a11y

The site is:
http://make.wordpress.org/accessibility/

Thanks to those who have already commented and spread the word about
the current activity.

Perhaps, at some point, WordPress will devote the resources necessary
to coordinate a volunteer and staff effort to comply with ATAG i.e.
take action on the thread that was opened on this site, back in May.

Please do not reply to this message on the WebAIM list; my aim is to
alert folks of this activity so that they can respond on the site
and/or begin to post accessibility-related Trac tickets that relate
to both front and back-end accessibility of the product.

Thanks for your time and consideration.

Best,
Jennifer
