Wikipedia Preview accessibility
Open, Needs TriagePublic


We need to first review the current state of accessibility of the Wikipedia Preview library and then create/improve accessibility functionality as needed. We should probably tap into accessibility expertise within the Foundation.

@EUdoh-WMF just adding this to your radar... we need to ensure proper accessibility of Wikipedia Preview. And that starts with testing so we know the current state of things.

@eamedina I attempted to test this using AXE browser devtool. I am not on a pro version anymore so I cannot download the report. However, here are screenshots:

From this, the result that appears relevant is:

Element Location: .wmf-wp-with-preview
Element Source: <span data-wikipedia-preview="" data-wp-title="Cat" data-wp-lang="en" class="wmf-wp-with-preview">Cat</span>

I will hand this over to QTE to continue this task.
