#31279 closed enhancement (fixed)

Bundled themes and .screen-reader-text

Reported by: afercia's profile afercia Owned by: lancewillett's profile lancewillett
Milestone: 4.2 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 4.1
Component: Bundled Theme Keywords: needs-testing has-patch
Focuses: accessibility Cc:


All bundled themes have now their CSS .screen-reader-text rules defined but they're different from the one recommended in the Codex and they also won't cover edge cases.

The rule used in core, which is very similar to the one now recommended in the Codex, tries to cover also edge cases, and for some good reasons, see for example r26602.

Please consider to update all bundled themes with the officially recommended rule, see:

Thank you for the ticket. Could you please be more specific about which themes need which CSS rules?

#3 follow-up: @lancewillett

Twenty Fifteen is following the current rules. The others will need patches to standardize around:

	clip: rect(1px, 1px, 1px, 1px);
	overflow: hidden;
	position: absolute !important;
	height: 1px;
	width: 1px;

Replying to lancewillett:

Twenty Fifteen is following the current rules.

Thanks very much Lance, you're right. Was confused because core uses also

margin: -1px;
padding: 0;
border: 0;

and a different clip respect to the rule recommended in the Codex. Thanks.
