Improve the Accessibility of Mautic

My idea is: Mautic is usable by people with disabilities

Who would benefit:

Any code or resources to support this idea:
As a first step, we will have to make sure the current code is compliant with the rules of GitHub - FreshConsulting/FreshConsulting-WCAG-Linter: A PHP_CodeSniffer custom rule (sniff) to detect obvious WCAG 2.0 accessibility violations..

In the second step, we can make sure that all newly committed code is compliant with the rules.

Are you willing to work on this idea?: yes

What skills and resources do you need to explore this further?
It should be added to the current set of rules that is already checking new PRs on Github

Definitely agree with this but I’m out of votes!

We probably would need to do an initial audit to pick up things we need to address and then plan to address them over time.

I’d love to automate as much as we can to nudge developers when they’re adding new PRs, but also to build a tiger team of folks who know about accessibility who could help us to build up expertise and keep things moving forward.

It might also be good to document the basics in the developer docs, perhaps, and/or some kind of pattern book/style guide.

Thanks for raising your hand to help get this going @adiux !

@escopecz any thoughts on this?

FYI, we have internally a PR that we can share with the community soon.
