I love the promise of PyScript. “Programming for the 99%” sounds like a vision centred in inclusivity. To cement this principle I’d like to see a commitment to digital accessibility and the web content accessibility guidelines.
A quick look at the current demos suggests that there is room for improvement with respect to accessibility. Testing for accessibility is a difficult skill to acquire but some simple tests will help improve current and future demos.
- Test the HTML with the HTML validator and aim for valid HTML
- Test the HTML with the axe extension for Chrome and fix any errors axe finds
- Make sure the interface is keyboard accessible
In addition to the demos, I think it’s critical that PyScript components are accessible.
Ensuring accessibility will allow all programmers to participate in the community and enjoy the many tools to be created with PyScript.
Will values be written for PyScript? If so, will accessibility be included?
