Hideable content in Moodle

Hi everyone!

I am working on making the Moodle shells of our school's classes
accessible, and one of the objects that I'm working on is a javascript
class called 'hideabox', and it hides certain divs from being displayed by
default, and allows the user to unhide the div by clicking on a text link
that reads 'click here to view the weekly task list'.

I know that it doesn't complicate things in any official rule breaking, but
I'm just wondering if it may cause issues in general for someone with
cognitive overload, or just add an extra click for someone who is not a
mouse or keyboard user.

Any input would be appreciated!

Thank you for your time,
