Hey Jess, thanks for taking time to post this - I am using WP at the
Ministry of Community & Social Services, to communicate with/engage the
11,000 staff who work in Ontario Disability Support Program and Ontario
Works (social assistance) - as a blind user, I'm quite interested in this

I'll connect with Rian and try to help out
