97.4% – that’s how many of the world’s top 1M homepages have basic accessibility issues, according to the WebAIM Million analysis. This appalling number is a reminder of how our choices as an industry have an impact on website users. It’s also a call to action! We’ll see how we got there, what systemic problems we’re dealing with, and potential solutions.

Along the way, we’ll learn about the choices the team behind Wagtail made, to improve the accessibility of all sites built with the CMS.
