    Might not be the best place to put this request. but seems relevant....

    Is there any chance that we could get some Accessibility options for exporting SVGs?

    At bare minimum, something to allow setting the <title> and <description> attributes, but also some better support around the ID - for use with aria labels and such.

    As a developer, it is consistently a nightmare to work with SVGs that are exported from Illustrator as it always requires running them through an optimizer (not my primary concern here, it's easy enough to script) and often also requires manually editing the code, but it is especially a nightmare when accessibility is a priority, because that can only be added manually.

    In an ideal world I could rely on the author of the SVGs to include all relevant information about the SVG (title and description), so when they get exported the only thing I would have to worry about would be optimization/de-bloating - and in a perfect world that wouldn't be necessary either.

    Thank you for your consideration! :)
