About

The Firefox Accessibility Team is responsible for the core disability access APIs in Gecko and we share responsibility with the Firefox front end team for the accessibility (often abbreviated as "a11y") of the browser's feature set. We're here to ensure that Firefox products and services are delightfully accessible to users with disabilities.

Slack and Matrix

  • Matrix/Riot.IM: #accessibility on chat.mozilla.org Synchronous discussions about engineering-specific topics (bugs, patches, code reviews, architectural issues, etc.) should happen in Matrix/Riot.IM.
  • Slack: #accessibility on Slack (MoCo employees and NDA'd contributors only.) Synchronous discussions about team operations, announcements, strategy, roadmap, and other banter tend to happen in Slack, but we endeavor to move as much of that as possible to Matrix/Riot.IM.
