Editoria11y (“editorial accessibility”) is a user-friendly checker that addresses three critical needs for content authors

  1. It runs automatically. Modern spellcheck works so well because it is always running; put spellcheck behind a button and few users remember to run it!
  2. It runs in context. Views, Layout Builder, Media and all the other modules Drupal uses to assemble a complex page means checkers that run on individual fields cannot “see” errors that appear on render.
  3. It focuses exclusively on content issues: things page editors can easily understand and easily fix. Editoria11y is meant to supplement, not replace, testing with comprehensive tools and real assistive devices.
