I am totally behind the concept of Gutenberg. But I find the fact that Matt keeps repeating the same accessibility talking points frustrating and exhausting. It seems like no matter how many times we tell him it’s not accessible and that his extra keyboard shortcuts don’t fix that, he just keeps insisting that it is. This is sad.

Thanks for your perspective Amanda. I’ve read a few posts about the accessibility side of this, and it seems to be a pretty complicated issue that I don’t fully understand.

I imagine that the accessibility study that Matt mentioned will help clarify the issues further. I certainly hope that these and similar concerns can be addressed soon.
