I usually say that the openess of science doesn't end at an open access paper. Sometimes we need to make things really accessible, either by translating, outreaching or even thinking about the colors that we use in our figures.

With IGNITE things are no different. We need to build our content thinking about everyone that can possibly benefit from it. I'm highly concerned about accessibility, and I suggest that, if you are going to contribute on the lessons (especially), you should pay attention to colors, words and figures.

Let's gather in this issue some resources and tips for making our material more accessible. I'll put a link to it in every issue related to the lessons.

This is a project moved by love.

I was talking w/ @AdrienneNepenthe about some draft work she has on accessibility in events & slides that I'm planning on incorporating into my own work.

@AdrienneNepenthe would you be able to share it here once the final version is ready?

There are some notes here about accessible research software that may help, too: https://github.com/accessibleresearchsoftware/accessibleresearchsoftware/issues (and feel free to contribute any back you know of)

I went to a conference and Alice Wong (creator of the Disability Visibility Project) and Yosmay de Mazo (who works with NPR's Story Corps) had a lot to say about the accessibility of online materials:
