Florida Drupal Camp: Accessible JavaScript In Action


Event Details

This event occurred on Sat, Feb 18, 2023

Florida Technical College, 12900 Challenger Parkway, Orlando


In this session, we reviewed accessibility challenges presented by these components:

  1. Modals. We will examine a modal overlay that attempts to reward users with a 50% off coupon. This type of interruption can create a real barrier for people with disabilities.
  2. TypeAhead or Autocomplete. We will review a site search component that attempts to help users complete their entry accurately and allow them to further refine suggested options. We will review the accessibility feature Drupal.announce and demonstrate how providing feedback to users can help them accomplish simple tasks.
  3. Menus. We will evaluate complex menus that contain multiple levels of links. Navigating a multi-level menu or a mega menu can prove to be challenging for keyboard only users.

This session aimed to provide practical tips and solutions that will help all users, regardless of their abilities, have equal access to content and functionality.
