Navigation Bar Rules
  • Basic heading rules have been sent to hadi
  • Concern FAE rules related to heading rules for navigation, that may or may not be applicable, what about navigation in a footer
  • Recommend that headers for navigation be checked in the document
  • We should move to ARIA markup for navigation bars
  • The current use of headings only for navigation is confusing
  • ARIA brings in some new capabilities
  • The initial rule was implemented for all list of links on the page, this was problematic for some pages that used list of links in the body and didn’t want to put in headers
  • We then limited to common places where navigation links could be found
  • When we go to a complicated application like Blackboard, they are working with them to use headings, but it is still difficult to separate navigation landmarks from header navigation
  • JG can draft some new rules and examples for example

Warning related to navigation menu and nested lists (heading)
  • May be related to Header Rules
  • Wait the developer to join the list

Testing of SoftChalk

  • CD will report on accessibility
  • MD reports that the XHTML may not be good, lots of frames
  • Lets try to create a working group on SoftChalk on accessibility
