What are people working on?#
Jenn and Erik
Hello from Space Telescope Science Institute and Astropy!
Jupyter notebooks aren’t accessible and we’d like them to be.
We’ve been working with GLAS Education to test our own work with blind and visually impaired people.
documentation as an area also lacking accessibility
Still trying to get pydata-sphinx-theme PRs merged (Lighthouse testing and pa11y testing)
question: are outputs returned by kernel, say data frames, accessible/is it being worked on by anyone? I know there is a lot of work on UX, but I wonder how much work will be there in downstream packages which provide outputs
[Max] if you’re talking about the fancy pandas dataframe rendering, the answer is definitely not. There are wcag/aria specs for how to make a grid accessible, tho
[Jason] That would be awesome if the frontend supported some innate dataframe mimetype which it could render in an accessible way
Should this be defined from the toolbar button instead of the tooltip?
Isabela will test the binder and see how the current implmentation works.
