Who knew adding structured data not only helps your SEO but it also adds accessibility...
How Does HTML Microdata Help With Accessibility?
...Microdata helps to locate and arrange content for browser Reader Mode...
...Reader Mode is a browser feature that makes it easier for someone to focus on content by:
•hiding non-essential page elements like navigation, sidebars, footers, and ads
•changing the page’s text size, contrast and layout for better readability
•removing distracting animations
This helps with creating a more accessible experience for people with cognitive impairments or learning disabilities, such as Dyslexia, as it strips away everything that’s unnecessary on the page...
Look at the sample code (for a blog post). Pretty easy. Are you going to implement this idea into your web page?

Microdata is an aria i need to learn more about. I really haven't had the chance to look in to it to deep these days.
I like the idea that it is not only helping SEO but also helps accessibility, but it does make sense that it would.
If i had to develop a website these days, i would most likely add microdata to it.
