Video Headers: Improve Basic Accessibility
|Reported by:||davidakennedy||Owned by:||joemcgill|
While testing video headers more, I identified some easy changes that will improve the overall accessibility of the feature.
- Add a visible play/pause button. Right now, you can pause and play a video by clicking on the video itself. This isn't obvious to users. This way, if a user is bothered by the motion of a video, it can easily be turned off.
- Add aria-hidden attribute to the video container: #wp-custom-header. Since these videos should be purely used as decorative videos, it makes sense to hide them from assistive technology. The visible play/pause button should also have an aria-hidden attribute since it's not needed by assistive technology.
