State Accessibility

There's a lot to do to develop Linchpin towards Accessibility. On this page you find a current summary of where we are on this path. For this we refer to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1)

the maximum if, for example, you do not want to allow exceptions.

When prioritizing, we want to look at the necessary "A" elements first, and only then the higher levels.

Is already fulfilled today because:

  • it is already correctly implemented in Linchpin, or
  • it is the responsibility of the content creator to take care of it, or
  • there are browser extensions or functions for it, or
  • Atlassian has already taken care of the correct implementation, or
  • it is irrelevant for Linchpin because the case does not occur, or
  • it can be configured that way.

This item is under evaluation


There is still work to be done here, and we have created corresponding development tickets.

Here we have deliberately decided against implementing this item, for example, because the effort would be extremely high for a small benefit.

Or: Atlassian has to work on this, since we have no influence at this point.


1. Perceivable - Information and user interface components must be presentable to users in ways they can perceive.

Guideline 1.1 Text Alternatives

Provide text alternatives for any non-text content so that it can be changed into other forms people need, such as large print, braille, speech, symbols or simpler language.
