Accessibility in the Block Editor

As a new addition to the design team at Automattic and a first-time contributor to the WordPress project, I’ve been spending a lot of time learning about accessibility features in Gutenberg, the WordPress block editor. I wanted to create this blog post to introduce myself (and you) to the many useful accessibility features available and provide some context about how recent improvements are helping take accessibility and usability to the next level. As with all aspects of WordPress — the work is never finished!
