I'd be very interested in making Jamroom 7 more accessible for all users.
I work at a university, and because we receive some public finding we are required by law since 2018 to not spend money or work time on anything using a browser which doesn't meet current accessibility regulations. In a nutshell that means WCAG 2.1 AA: https://www.w3.org/WAI/WCAG21/quickref/?showtechniques=pageinfo¤tsidebar=%23col_customize&levels=aaa&technologies=flash
I know there are very similar Section 508 requirements in the US.
Forgetting law and regulations (I do try to), I believe that there is a really good business (and moral) case for making web apps usable by all people. W3C have been advocating for an accessible web since the start. The more people who can use a web platform the better, they will be able to interact/enjoy/feedback/pay/learn/buy things via the platform. Judging by the accessibility conferences I have been to (remotely) over the past 3 years big business is way ahead on this, universities are sadly way, way behind and are now only trying to catch up because they are legally compelled to.
Making Jamroom 7 a more accessible platform is my suggestion. I don't have the skills to make it fully compliant with the guidelines (e.g. I don't even have the patience to learn to use a screen reader properly), but I do have some knowledge in the area. And I'd be more than happy to help with making Jamroom more accessible if the Team have any interest in that.
¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Education, learning resources, TEL, AR/VR/MR, CC licensed content, panoramas, interactive narrative, sectional modules (like jrDocs), lunch at Uni of Bristol. Get in touch if you share my current interests or can suggest better :)
