@aahz: Most modern websites require javascript. I don't think it is fair to
just assume that web developers do not care about accessibility. A cursory
glance through the client code shows that they at least use aria labels.
They also have a job opening for an Accessibility Product Manager.

Perhaps the people on slack might consider turning on the IRC gateway
to bring both worlds together?
