Accessible Drupal Teasers

We're running into the adjacent links issue in our custom-themed Drupal teasers where a teaser image (linked) floats left, next to the node title (also linked), a short description text (trimmed body text) and a "Continue reading" (i.e., more link).

The DOM looks roughly like this:

<

article class="node__teaser">

Only local images are allowed.

[node:title]

[node:body:trimmed]

WEB COMPONENTS, POLYMER AND DECOUPLING DESIGN IN DRUPAL

Wanted to reference this here in case people didn't see it. We've got https://drupal.org/project/webcomponents module able to go straight from polymer templates to display modes to field UI to rendered output. This completely by-passes the traditional tpl / template file workflow and allows front-end to dictate design to backend (instead of in Drupal where it's usually a mish-mash of both). It's also by-reference so updating your templates sees them updated in Drupal.

Future directions for Drupal Accessibility in D8 and D9

A few weeks ago Mike Gifford reached out to me to ask if I would consider joining the team of accessibility maintainers for Drupal core... and after giving it some thought I said YES! I'm really stoked about being asked - I've been bouncing around my home a LOT since Mike asked me. There currently an open issue to update MAINTAINERS.txt.

A11y toolkit module

Just wanted to blast it here as well that I made an accessibility toolkit module which provides a block to help provide ways of improving your site for different visual impairments; most resolving around dyslexia (like a font that makes it easier to read). We also store the setting in a cookie and in the future will do this on the serverside so it doesn't have to reload each time (as the screencast currently shows).

Support, feedback and improvement suggestions always welcome: https://drupal.psu.edu/blog/post/a11y-accessibility-toolkit-module
