 > We could add the H1 to the site name in the admin bar
 That wouldn't be a good use of H1, the site name information is already
 available in the `<title>` tag. The H1 should reflect the main topic of
 each specific screen so if you're in the Media Library it should have as
 text "Media Library" and so on. Users need to know where they are as first
 thing. That's not just for "abstract" compliance with the specs, it's what
 users actually use to navigate the page, see what's the first thing screen
 reader users do to find information in a page:

 If you're interested in accessibility, feel free to join us on Slack >
 Accessibility. Trac maybe is not the best place to have long conversations
 about semantics.
