Happy to see you guys here. A11Y is super important. How do we take charge?

@Jookia
I would say by making sure everything you do is accessible :D

Hello! I had a question about aria-describedby and its proper usage. I have a custom UI form element that is difficult to make accessible using regular semantic means. I was thinking about using aria-describedby and adding additional context to parts of that UI element to be read by screen readers, and hiding that text by using display: none. Is this a valid approach or am I using aria-describedby in a bad way?
Jookia
@Jookia
@clarle Maybe? I mean it could work but can you use another element, one that's better understandable?
Raphael Polniak
@rpavantica
I am working with JAWS when I select a div with tabindex="0" it reads other elements of the page before the actually aria-label. Anyone have this issue and know why this occurs?
Jookia
@Jookia
why are you messing with tabindex?
Raphael Polniak
@rpavantica
The elements won't get selected unless I do so.
I also noticed that I don't get this issue with NVDA.
Jookia
@Jookia
it probably depends on your actual code. can you show it?
Raphael Polniak
@rpavantica
It's too much code, my assumption is that JAWS has a bug. Cause it doesn't happen when I move back up the index.
Jookia
@Jookia
can you make a reproducible case very small?
Raphael Polniak
@rpavantica
That was my next step, but I gave up and moved onto other ADA issues. There was an instance where this occurred when a link was within a link. Perhaps there was some bad semantics somewhere. Not having a issue in other applications made me move on, will swing back eventually.

General accessibility question, but does anyone know what the uptake of the Braille keyboard on iOS has been? I see Android added a similar one this year: https://www.cnet.com/news/google-debuts-a-braille-keyboard-for-vision-impaired-android-users/

Do the common users know the terms used for accessibility issues, such as Keyboard trap and other such? How do the non-technical users report the issue to the website admins if they don't know the technical terms for the particular accessibility issues?

Hey all - I have a question for you. My company is creating a marketing funnel page that would be accessed from an external site (LinkedIn, for example) but not accessed from our website itself. The page will exist on our website and have the same branding. However, our marketing team is insisting on not having a main menu to keep a user focused on the page's call to action. Our accessibility team insists that this goes against accessibility in terms of creating a page that doesn't have a main menu and traps a user on the page. So now it's a conflict of accessibility 101 VS. marketing 101. The two teams are at an impasse. I'm curious if there is a solution or point we're not seeing here and was hoping having an outside pair of eyes on it could help us.
Reading up I realize there may be an actual Slack channel now? Anytime I go to the invite page, it says down for maintenance - how does one go about getting an invite?
