The following text is from tweets with https://twitter.com/RianRietveld a WordPress engineer focused on accessibility and testing. Her personal page is here http://rianrietveld.com/

They are about to roll-out a new authoring environment in WP called Gutenberg…

Gutenberg is in development for almost a year now is getting ready for merge into WordPress. I'm gathering the troops to test it with AT, as we see major problems. We couldn't really test before because of all the changes that were made.
what we need most now is testers and people who help solving the a11y and usability problems.
The discussion is on GitHub with the tickets labeled accessibility. If you could test and join the discussion, that would be so helpful
If you need access to a test environment or need other resources, please let me know

You can reach her on Twitter directly or let me know if you want to reach her but aren’t on twitter!
