#6860 closed enhancement (fixed)

Accessibility: Improve markup of Credits Screen

Reported by: mercime Owned by: mercime
Milestone: 2.5 Priority: normal

Description

Our current screen has links that are adjacent to each other which point to the same reference and also has images with alt attributes that are the same as the adjacent texts in links. These make extra noise for screen reader users and also causes extra tabbing for those using their keyboards to navigate the screen.

The following images will be attached for reference:

  • a screenshot of the before and after of screen reader outputs
  • some animated gifs of keyboard navigation on BP/WP trunk, BPtrunk/WP 4.4.1, and BPtrunk/WP 3.9.

Upcoming patch will address these issues.
