[resolved] Accessibility: how to expand without a mouse? (5 posts)

    Hello! I am running a site which also caters largely to people with disabilities; people who can't or have difficulty holding a mouse, and people who are visually impaired.

    As a world-wide standard and by default, all clickable items have an outline property. Links can be selected by continuously pressing the tab button and can be activated just by pressing enter on the keyboard. Unfortunately, this necessary and important feature is missing from your wonderful plugin. Is there another way to expand without using a mouse? By any chance, are you using a { outline: none; } to disable the arrow outline?

    Hoping to hear from you soon.

    Your plugin is the best of it's kind. Awesome work! :)

    Hi Mr. Baden. Instead of bluntly deleting my follow-up posts, you should just reply by simply telling me that YOU HAVE NO INTEREST in this accessibility feature.

    Yes. You simply need to use the tag="a" attribute to make the trigger an html anchor that will be accessible via tab. Also recommended is that you use the alt attribute to give a clearer description for screen readers.

    We care very much about accessibility, and have done extensive barrier free projects in the past. However, this is the first we have seen your post. We did not delete anything. And since you have such a lovely attitude while trying to receive free support. We will simply point you to the documentation for any further help.

    Good luck.

    I didn't mean to be rude but I posted this thread two months ago and people who posted just one or two weeks ago got a reply from you way before you replied on this one. Not to mention my follow up posts kept on mysteriously getting deleted which made me assume that you are deliberately ignoring me. Also, I already tried tag="a" a long long time ago but it doesn't work. Furthermore, I am working with a paid version of this plugin, but I guess that didn't matter. Lastly, your attitude is extremely lovelier than mine if my second post was enough to tell me that you're going to completely ignore me asking for any further help.
