#7256 closed enhancement (fixed)

Accessibility: Differentiate navigation landmarks in front-end templates

Reported by: mercime's profile mercime Owned by: mercime's profile mercime
Milestone: 2.7 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version:
Component: Templates Keywords: has-patch


We have twenty navigation landmarks throughout the bp-legacy templates. Add one or more navigation landmarks from the theme side, that can get confusing for users of assistive technologies.

We need to clarify what our navigation landmarks are in relation to the other navigation landmarks and the whole screen by adding aria-labels.

Attached patch gives a general overview of each primary and secondary navigation elements. We could make each specific e.g. Group settings menu, Member profile menu, etc. What do you think? :)

When these go in, can we update BP-Nouveau with these? Any accessibility enhancements we make with BP-Legacy should be copied into BP-Nouveau where they can/

@DJPaul Yes. I have also mentioned to hnla that I contribute to bp-nouveau after BP 2.7 rolls out :)

Updated patch removes navigation role for Group create tabs and changes menu for navigation.
