the gaad pledge

The GAAD pledge is a unique concept in React Native, in which we can improve accessibility in real-time projects. React Native APIs already provide support for accessibility. But many components do not utilize platform-specific APIs for some platform-specific features. Also In some platform-specific features, Support is missing.

The GAAD pledge was launched in 2020 by Diamond. Developers and organizations made a commitment to make accessibility a base value of their digital products. It is open-source and has taken through since last year.

Facebook is delighted to be the first company to take the pledge in the event of Global accessibility awareness day 2020. It has committed that React native is fully accessible.

The eagerness and heterogeneity of contributors have always played a vital role in the development of React native technology. These apertures bring great fortune for current and new contributors. 

To appreciate and thank contributors for their strive, when an accessibility issue is completed and attached to pull request, contributors will get a call out on Twitter from our community director. Whose pull requests of contributors are approved into the codebase will be underlined in monthly obstacles updates on this blog.
