Post view accessibility for last edit link


(Sarah) #1

Problem: The last edits link is missed because it doesn’t have an href

Repro Steps:

  1. Navigate to any post view within the forum where the user has edited their response (ie. Set topic title with Discourse Embed )

  2. Press TAB to cycle through the page until you reach the user’s name is highlighted

  • notice the topic header is highlighted, the type of issue, the user’s profile image, the user’s name
  1. Press TAB again and the focus jumps to the relative date of the post

Expected behavior: The focus should have gone from the user’s name, to the last edits link, to the relative date.

I am not sure if this qualifies as a bug, because I am not sure how focused you guys are with accessibility.

Is it that the sequence is out of order, or that it is impossible to tab to the edit indicator?

Perhaps you can take a look @techAPJ

It is impossible to tab to it because there is no tabindex or href (which are things that make the links tabbable)

I do have to say, the accessibility for Discourse is really well done. When I opened chromevox to test the post view the descriptions and order of links is really good!
