Accessibility Statement

We want everyone who uses Gatsby to feel welcome and find the experience rewarding: this includes developers with disabilities and users with disabilities for Gatsby sites, docs, and resources.

This page was created to collect accessibility information about the Gatsby ecosystem in one place and provide communication channels for people with disabilities to get help with Gatsby.

Gatsby products and services

Gatsbyjs.com contains both the information for the open source Gatsby website framework and for products from Gatsby, Inc. the startup building Gatsby.

The former includes documentation, tutorials, and guides on how and why to build with Gatsby, as well as a blog, site showcase, and information on how to contribute to the project. The latter holds information about Gatsby Preview, Gatsby Cloud, and Gatsby Hosting which combined make up a unified cloud platform specifically built for the Gatsby framework.

Providing feedback and getting accessibility help

We strive to make these websites and the Gatsby framework itself as accessible as possible. Our goal is to meet WCAG 2.1 AA, with which we are partially compliant. We’ll be the first to admit the Gatsby ecosystem is a work in progress, and we are open to all feedback to make things better.

To contact the core team with your accessibility feedback or challenges, please file an issue on GitHub.

Alternatively, we welcome you to reach out to us via email at Gatsby: accessibility@gatsbyjs.com

Third-party platforms, products and services

Common Gatsby workflows involve third-party products and services, such as sourcing from Content Management Systems, and managing and deploying sites with hosting platforms. Some of these platforms appear to have been designed and/or built without accessibility in mind; we encourage those vendors to improve their accessibility along with us.

Our current recommendations for accessible CMS platforms are:

  • WordPress with the Classic Editor Plugin
  • Drupal

For managing and deploying Gatsby sites with accessible tools, we recommend:

  • Gatsby Cloud

To provide feedback for third-party services, you can contact those vendors directly or write to us, and we will do our best to pass the information along. We’re also interested in hearing about your successes with third-party platforms!

Surveys and research projects

The Gatsby team conducts surveys and research projects from time to time. We highly value feedback from all Gatsby users, and particularly those with experience applicable to the research being conducted.

To be considered for these initiatives, please contact accessibility@gatsbyjs.com.
