Facebook makes its React Native open source framework fully accessible

React Native

Facebook announced on Global Accessibility Awareness Day that it has taken the GAAD pledge to make its open source React Native framework fully accessible. The social network also shared an infographic with tips encouraging social media users to make their posts more accessible for all.

React’s documentation shares that it uses HTML techniques to build accessible websites. Web accessibility (also known as a11y) allows assistive technology to interpret web pages. Alt text within code, image descriptions, and podcast transcriptions are three examples of accessibility.
