    Hello Jetpack.

    We love your plugin but we find many modules are not accessible to persons with disabilities. One particular module we use is the slideshow shortcode module which works great for our needs but is not keyboard friendly. There seems to be a requirement for a user to move their mouse over the slideshow before the controls become visible, this does not comply with WCAG 2.0 requirements because many users cannot use a mouse. Would you consider adding a setting for disabling the fade in and fade out effects on the controls so they remain "display:block" immediately on load so a keyboard only user can tab through the controls?

    Thanks for the report. I've opened a bug report for this at https://github.com/Automattic/jetpack/issues/1001

    We've been making improvements on accessibility in Jetpack, but aren't where we should be yet.
