Re: skip nav ... best practices 2015

Not sure if you've heard of the WET framework but I believe that their skip nav was designed with WCAG 2.0 and responsive design in mind. If you go to the following link you can tab a few times to see the skip nav appear and if using Firefox in responsive design view then you can see how it looks on mobile but since there is no tabbing on touchscreens I wonder how it would show up on an actual device...


I hope this helps a bit.

I have not seen a reply for this question.

This is just my two cents worth. I still find the skip nav useful because of the number of people who don't mark up their sites very well. There are also blind people who don't know how to use regions, as well as screen readers which don't fully implement them correctly.

I'm updating HTMLS and css in an existing theme...
Just wondering what are the best practices for skip nav on a responsive site?
