Give us feedback on Microsoft accessibility and how we can improve?

Make the GitHub contribution chart accessible

With the recent acquisition of GitHub, I am hoping Microsoft can help to make parts of it more accessible. The contribution chart in particular is a mess. It is completely keyboard inaccessible, its hit areas are too small, it offers no cues for what is interactive, its contrast is poor, it is not exposed to screen readers in any way, and it is not even responsive.

As a coding experiment I outlined these issues and made a WCAG 2.1 AA compliant version and shared it with GitHub in the hopes they would use it:
