“After several years of working on WordPress and accessibility and being part of the accessibility team, I have taken the very difficult decision to leave the WordPress accessibility team. I owe it to the team to explain why I have made this decision and how I hope things can improve for the future.

“The last year, especially the last few weeks have been too politically complicated for me. It’s better that someone else takes the lead now.”

> The codebase of Gutenberg is difficult for all of us, because no one in the wpa11y team is a skilled REACT developer. So it was hard to implement changes and write PRs ourselves. What we could do is test, tell what’s wrong and what it should be and hope a developer would pick it up.

It is so sad to see WordPress descend into inaccessible design and a fragile JS-first mindset.

It's now apparently impossible to build form inputs without a framework. 😭
