I understand that Airtable is an incredibly complex application and making all of it meet WCAG standards for accessibility is a long/difficult process. As an educational institution, we are mostly limited by the SHARE and FORM options within Airtable. If there was a way to share gallery/table views and forms that were accessible it would quadruple our possible business use cases for Airtable. If we could post Airtable forms or shared views on our public websites it would significantly increase its usefulness. Without that, we can only use Airtable as a backend organizational tool for a small number of users. I realize there are workarounds for this with other applications but each application purchase includes an extensive budget, IT, and accessibility review, and adding additional tools just to make our outputs from Airtable accessible is a huge pain.

I’m currently facing the same predicament with Airtable. I also work at an educational institution. Airtable would be an amazing tool to use in public-facing websites, or even in student-facing assignments or projects. However, it seems to be inaccessible via a screen reader. As Jenna suggests, I can build alternatives with other tools, but this comes with a cost of time, effort, and licensing.

@Jenna_Strahm1, did you ever receive any response or additional information? Thanks!
