Twenty Twenty-Two theme is the first of the block theme era to be tagged accessibility-ready

“The reason the theme accessibility-ready guidelines are stricter than WCAG is mostly for clarity: the guidelines were written to be easily testable and explicit.” Accessibility Team contributor Joe Dolson commented on the ticket.

“The point being that we couldn’t provide extensive accessibility training to theme reviewers, so we needed the rules to be as narrow as possible. As long as we update the guidelines in a way that still meets that criteria, I think it would be fine.”

The Themes and Accessibility teams reached a agreement on how the accessibility-ready tag will apply to block themes going forward so contributors could move forward with adding the tag to their themes as well.
