WP Accessibility Regression (4 posts)

    Since the new release of WordPress the new menu does not feature accessibility. This is quite disappointing. There are basic features that need to be available like tabbing through a sub-menu. By default this can no longer occur.

    Sub-menu keyboard access is a double-edged sword. It can actually create barriers by forcing users to tab through every single menu item which can be a right PITA. Far better for themes to provide sub-category and sub-page links on top level pages, in my opinion & experience.

    I work for an ADA center and our websites HAVE to be accessible, so the double edged sword for us doesn't really apply as it's better for us to be accessible to everyone and a PIA for some.

    I meant it was a double-edged sword in terms of web accessibility. Forcing users to tab through multiple sub-menus causes major access problems for some users - like those using switches. You're also still left with barriers for VR users.
