Re: [External Sender] Hidden content for screen reader


From: Brian Lovely

It depends on the content. For instance, if the contents of a closed
accordion drawer are still in the DOM, and any actionable elements in that
closed drawer still are in the focus order, it would be a violation of
1.3.2 Meaningful Sequence and 2.4.3 Focus Order.

If, however, that visually hidden content was an explanatory text intended
to provide information that is otherwise provided only visually, or that
may be difficult to discern without a visual context, then that text is not
a violation. What SC it would fall under would depend on the situation, but
could be 1.1.1 Non-text Content, 3.3.2 Labels or Instructions, or another.
