With the release of Drupal 7, Web accessibility has been greatly improved by the Drupal community.Drupal is a good framework for building sites accessible to people with disabilities, because many of the best practices have been incorporated into the program code Core. The accessibility team is carrying on the work of identifying and resolving accessibility barriers and raising awareness within the community. Drupal 7 started the adoption of WAI-ARIA support for Rich Internet Applications and this has been carried further in Drupal 8. There have been many improvements to both the visitor and administrator sides of Drupal, especially:
- Drag and drop functionality
- Improved color contrast and intensity
- Adding skip navigation to Core themes
- Adding labels by default for input forms
- Fixing CSS display:none with consistent methods for hiding and exposing text onfocus.
The community also added an accessibility gate for Core issues in Drupal 8.
