Accessibility tag:
#D8AX - Drupal 8 Accessibility eXperience (previously #D7AX)

Wording of accessibility tag:

#D8AX - I pledge to make this [module or theme] as accessible as it can be. If you find any flaws, please submit an issue [link to issue queue]. Help me fix them if you can.

Copy and paste the following to your project page:

<strong>#D8AX - I <a href="http://groups.drupal.org/node/66323">pledge</a> to make this [module or theme] as <a href="http://drupal.org/node/394094">accessible as it can be</a>. If you find any flaws, please <a href="/project/issues/[project-name]">submit an issue</a>. Help me fix them if you can.</strong>

Other Code Examples:

This is for a theme and includes a link to the solr search results page for all themes that have taken the pledge.

<strong><a href="http://drupal.org/project/themes?solrsort=sort_title%20asc&text=d7ax">#D8AX</a> - I <a href="http://groups.drupal.org/node/66323">pledge</a> to make this theme as <a href="http://drupal.org/node/394094">accessible as it can be</a>. If you find any flaws, please <a href="/project/issues/[project-name]">submit an issue</a>. Help me fix them if you can.</strong>

What the pledge means: The developers commit to doing basic evaluation of their module or theme; fixing accessibility issues tagged with accessibility or D8AX; asking for help to build accessibility improvements for future development; and responding to accessibility issues when they are filed. The developers should consider the user experience of administrators, content creators, and site visitors.

How does pledging benefit me? By pledging to support the accessibility of your module or theme, it is more likely to be used by large enterprises, government and educational institutions. By making each piece of the Drupal puzzle accessible, you are helping to set Drupal apart from other CMS tools and position our community to grow in these arenas. You should expect to see more use of your module or theme. If a few modules all provide the same feature but one is accessible, it may be more likely to be chosen. In addition, the accessibility of your module/theme and the content it generates will help Google and other search engines to find and share that content. And once you pledge, members of the Drupal Accessibility group will give you more support and technical resources.
