Accessible News Slider

Category: Other - Tools & Utilities

Accessible News Slider is a JavaScript plugin built for the jQuery library.Features: - The JavaScript is only 2KB compressed. - The XHTML and JavaScript were developed specifically to meet the WCAG 1.0, and this will always be the number one priority of the plugin. It is suggested that if you modify the XHTML, you do so keeping this in mind. - Users with color vision deficiency, or color blindness The plugin does not use color as a primary indicator of a change in state for the slider. Instead, the "previous" and "next" arrows are either visible or hidden, depending on the location of the news slider. There is also an indicator that communicates the total number of news stories in the slider. - Users with limited or poor vision, but who do not use a screen reader If the user chooses to resize the text via the browser file menu, the slider will flex vertically to accommodate the larger text, and still function. This is primarily a function of the CSS, and it is suggested you maintain a variable font size on your site in order to take advantage of this capability. - Users that are legally blind, and who browse Web pages with a screen reader Since screen readers actually read through the code, it is important that the XHTML be formatted free of confusion. The appropriate skip links and title tags have been included for navigation and messaging. The important thing to remember is that screen readers like JAWS ignore elements with the display property set to "none", or with the visibility property set to "hidden". This helps significantly in managing the presentation to several categories of disabled users. - Users that browse with the keyboard and an adaptive device such as a mouth stick When developing a Web component to be accessible, this is the most difficult group of disabled users to accommodate. If you have ever tried to browse by tabbing through a Web page, it can be frustrating. Although the core functionality of the news slider is partially accessible with a keyboard, the "View All" link was added as a catch-all mechanism. - Users who have turned off JavaScript or CSS The key was to make sure that not only were all the news stories readable with JavaScript or CSS turned off, but that the appropriate messaging was displayed to the user to inform them of the implications. Although not a category that I think fits explicitly under accessibility, it is a component of the WCAG 1.0 checkpoints, and strides were taken to make sure the plugin met these requirements. Date: 16 April, 2012
