The current state of accessibility for HEY, and future plans.

The HEY of today represents a “version 1” culmination of two years of effort. It is far from complete. We know there are many areas in which we can make the software better and fully inclusive — especially in terms of accessibility. HEY currently does not meet the requirements of fully accessible software. We have full WCAG AA 2.1 compliance as our target and commit to improving HEY until we get there.

Michael has also developed — and continues to maintain — an internal Accessibility Handbook as a resource for designers.

The following outlines some of the ways we review the accessibility of new features and flows:
