Customizer - Widgets - Insufficient Information for Screen Readers when Reordering and Moving Widgets

Reported by: grahamarmfield's profile GrahamArmfield Owned by: sergeybiryukov's profile SergeyBiryukov
Milestone: 4.0 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 4.0
Component: Customize Keywords: has-patch commit
Focuses: accessibility Cc:


Tested with NVDA on FF30 and JAWS on IE10, on Windows 7 64 bit.

To recreate:

  • Start your screen reader
  • Tab into Customize > Widgets
  • Tab to sidebar that has widgets within it and press Enter to open.
  • Tab to the Reorder button and press Enter.
  • Reverse tab back up to reach the Move controls.

When tabbing to the Move up, Move down, Move to another area controls the screen reader does not announce which widget they refer to, so user is not clear which one they are going to be moving.

Suggest that the widget name is included in the span. Eg "Recent Comments: Move Up"
