    After performing an accessibility audit on Twentytwelve, I discovered some areas of improvement worth considering in a future release:
    1. Re-consider h1 headings. Currently, TwentyTwelve wraps post and widget titles in h1 tags. h1 headings should be reserved to the site’s title on the homepage displaying a loop of posts and to the post/page/archive title on any of these stand-alone pages.
    2. Integrate <main> HTML5 or ARIA landmark roles. Currently, TwentyTwelve wraps the unique main content (that is, a post loop, or the post/page main content) in divs with id=”main”. It is good practice to enclose these in <main> tags or assign an ARIA landmark role=”Main”. Adding these will tell screen reader technologies to navigate through the content of a site.
    3. A suggestion for the skip link. It’s fantastic that the theme integrates a skip link to the main content. A suggestion could be to increase the padding and bring more contrast with respect to the website.

    If this is something you’re able to work on in a new release, I’d like to know your best estimation of when this will occur.
