#29102: we decided on closing this ticket, autofocus on the search form is not a good idea a11y wise.
- no links should open in a new window (to be consistent throughout the Admin)
- already made settings might be lost, so before following a link, the user must be warned like: “there are unsaved changes….”
- an alternative, but complex solution would be that settings are auto saved before leaving a window
- we should do a search on all links that open in a new window in the Admin
#21414: a 3 year old ticket by @azaozz about enabling/disabling the keyboard shortcuts in the user profile settings. For assistive technology it can be useful to disable them. We will comment on the ticket to start the conversation again.
The accessibility testers are trying out if they can download an export file in the Admin/ Tools/Export with all kind of assistive technology, results will be in July 30. First results look promising.
The application form for new a11y testers is temporary offline, because of the huge amount of spam. It’s on Sams to-do list.
