Stop using Chosen for select replacement


(Robert De Luca) #1

Why?

The main reason is it breaks screen readers. My blind mom can’t use any discourse sites because of chosen.

Alternative:

I have a plugin named DropKick that’s about to go to version 2.0 which does work with screen readers and acts exactly like a select.

I also had a presentation at a meetup here in Orlando on it but I can’t link to it since I’m limited to 2 links.

We’ve recently migrated from Chosen to Select2. Does Select2 have the same issue?

Nope! Carry on. :smile:
