Sakai 2.9.x

2.9 Accessibility Help Documentation Drafted by Jane and Gonzalo

  • Scott and Walt took a look at the draft of the help documentation, although Walt took a look at an older version.
  • Walt thought that the document should not be any longer than it is.
  • One thing Joe noticed is that there could be more information on accessibility tips for specific tools.
  • Mary indicated that if there is to be tool specific help, there should be separate pages for each specific tool linked from the main documentation.

Sakai 2.9 Accessibility Review

Continued Testing

  • The accessibility test server maintained at IU had to be taken down do to JAVA vulnerability issues.
  • Joe is working on finding an alternative test server.
  • After test server issue is addressed, testing should continue. The server issue should be resolved by next the meeting.
  • When testing, focus on tools that have not been reviewed at all or for a long time.

News Regarding Modal Dialog Warning Accessibility Issue

  • New comments have been added to the modal dialogue warning Jira issue.
  • Joe proposed two solutions:
    • Change which element is being targeted using ARIA labeledby attribute
    • Place hidden content in the currently targeted element containing the same the information in dialogue body.
  • At first a lot of people liked the second idea. But it seems from the most recent meeting is that  the idea is no longer as popular.

Ongoing Accessibility Testing
