Jupyter accessibility efforts have a roadmap!
Published February 28, 2022
Really? Tell me more.
The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative has funded efforts to make the Jupyter ecosystem, starting with JupyterLab, more accessible (As was announced in a prior Jupyter blog post about grants in the ecosystem). You can read the full grant proposal for Jupyter accessibility, the proposal summary, or a GitHub Project list of the grant's milestones to get a sense of the grant's scope.
As a part of these increased efforts, the team will be providing a periodically updated list of what is currently being worked on and what is coming soon. This document will help the community stay up-to-date and contribute if interested.
Where can I find the roadmap?
If you can't get enough of this news, you may want to visit the grant management repository where the roadmap is coordinated. It has additional resources like weekly team updates and issues for later on than the roadmap currently covers.
How can I get involved with the project?
