Howdy! Just sharing these accessibility tools from "that guy" on our team that does this for our website, etc. in case they're helpful for any of you who are in the same boat trying to apply this stuff to your communities!
Hover Accessibility Tips:
- Make sure hover links appear for keyboard users.
- Don't use hover effects to hide links.
- Don't use color alone to identify hyperlinks.
- Write descriptive hyperlink text.
With our testing in staging so far, and unless we're missing something which is entirely possible, it appears Vanilla's new Foundation theme does NOT have link hover underlining built-in (just highlighting/color change and cursor/pointer change from arrow to hand). It's something we may have to have our web design consultant try to add. I'll submit that as a feature request too. (Go like it!)
Cheers to accessibility!
Hi @Val - I must be missing something. In our staging site where we have the Foundation theme applied, I'm not having this experience. When I hover over a link (discussions, bookmarks, any member names, discussion titles, etc), the text changes color and the cursor changes from an arrow to a hand, but there is no underline.0
