Details/Summary in HTML 5 - Any 2.4.4 Link Purpose failures?


From: Rabab Gomaa

We use <details> and <summary> expand and collapse feature to hide =
description of images.=20
<figure role=3D"group">
<details> <summary>Description of image</summary>=20
xyz... </details>
Do you think repetition of summary content "Description of image" would be =
a bad practise or cause a WCAG 2.4.4 Link Purpose failure because the =
keyboard tabbing will move through many <summary> that all read the same =
"Description of image". Would that cause any confusion to screen readers?
Thank you,
