Make ULS accessible from keyboard
Closed, ResolvedPublic


To make the ULS usable from the keyboard we need to:

  • Allow the ULS to be opened when pressing enter or space if the cog is focused.
  • Allow Display and Input tabs be focused in ULS personal toolbar mode using tab key and allow enter&space as trigger.
  • Allow Display and Input panes to be focused in ULS settings view using tab key and allow enter&space as trigger.

Pressing space should not scroll the screen when focus is on the cog or input/display.

Checked in wmf.21 - ULS seems to be accessible according to the specs in the ticket:

@Amire80, @Pginer-WMF - should be selection of languages be accessible also? If I select via keyboard 'Language settings'->'Display' and then click three dots menu - I am not able to select language:

Even after typing a specific language that is presented in the list, I have no way to enter it via keyboard.

Should be a separate ticket or it's ok for now?

Even after typing a specific language that is presented in the list, I have no way to enter it via keyboard.

Pressing enter selects the language for me. It's true that tabbing into the list of languages is not currently possible (except in CLL list)
