Description (last modified by greiner)


In the current version of the new options page (see #1524) interaction with checkboxes is only possible using the cursor. Therefore we should implement standardized techniques to support screen readers and enable keyboard interactions.

What to change

  • Make custom checkboxes focusable by replacing them with focusable elements and/or by setting the tabindex attribute
  • Enable toggling of custom checkboxes with SPACE key
  • Add the following ARIA attributes to custom checkboxes
    • role="checkbox"
    • aria-checked="false"
  • Update the aria-checked attribute each time the value of the custom checkbox changes
  • The list item text should act as the label of the checkbox
