Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG)

Does Confluence comply with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG)?

If it does not comply, are there either:

  1. Moves to implement compliance with the guidelines, or
  2. A plugin that can be used to implement compliance.

We now have a dedicated accessibility team at Atlassian, and we are ramping up our efforts to align to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 level AA. All our VPAT (Voluntary Product Accessibility Template) documents are audited against the WCAG 2.1 level AA guidelines  (which complies with Section 508 of the U.S. Rehabilitation Act). You can read our commitment to accessibility and access the VPAT documents on the Atlassian Accessibility page.

Hello @Becky Topps 

Thank you for your answer on this. I am glad to know that someone in Atlassian is working on this important issue. 

We have a customer request to ask what plans are in place to improve the tools in regards to accessibility? Particularly what plans are currently on the roadmap. 

Do you have any improvements in accessibility scheduled for future Atlassian releases? Where is accessibility improvements are on the Roadmap?

It would be great if you can give us an update.
