Description (last modified by saroyanm)


The new version of the options page introduces custom tooltips (see #2356) which should be made more accessible by use of ARIA attributes.

What to change

  • Mark tooltips as such using the following ARIA attributes:
    • role="tooltip"
    • aria-hidden="true"
  • Mark elements triggering tooltips using the following ARIA attributes:
    • aria-describedby
  • Update the aria-hidden attribute each time the visibility of a tooltip changes

I removed the keyboard accessibility implementation, while this is topic that will behave differently, so in the new design the tooltip will not be hidden or be shown by hover, but by click, other accessibility imporvements here might still be usefult, considering that we most probably will change the style of the tooltips, but this accessility elements should be the part of the new tooltips still.
