TheDJ added a comment to T203604: [BUG] Parameter buttons should have screenreader friendly tooltips.

@Mooeypoo I think the biggest issue here is that the buttons don't have state, as I describe in the description of my video walkthrough.

TheDJ added a comment to T204861: Reconsider keyboard user navigation hint exposure.

Not sure what goes on exactly, possibly has something to do with the #anchor synchoronization. But when I cursor from tab to tab on https://en.wikipedia.beta.wmflabs.org/wiki/Special:Preferences
The focus immediately follows me, and selects to tabpanel making it impossible to actually descend into the tabpanel, because going forward or backward will select the next tabpanel again. (only the first and last allow me to get out).

I noticed this on the RFC talk page, but let me also put it here: Why limit to maintenance tasks ?
Why not a general architecture to run (command line) tools, of which the maintenance tool is just a more specific set/scope (maybe it's own registry ?)

TheDJ added a comment to T203583: {{subst:REVISIONUSER}} no longer substitutes into the current user name, but the username of the last revision .

has no one tested that things like this shouldn’t happen? Can we instruct people to thoroughly test major changes like these so that this wouldn’t happen again?

Most of this part of MediaWiki has no unit tests. How it is "meant" to work is held in the minds of a few thousand users from their experiences. When re-writing it from scratch, sometimes some ultra-edge-cases get missed, like this one (all the REVISION* magic words are dark magic which are abused significantly). There was a great deal of testing, but sadly this was missed. The good news is that this area is now extensively covered in tests.

TheDJ added a comment to T198926: The input fields should not be focused when the field is removed.

I don't have enough time to read through all this, but note that jumping the focus elsewhere ALSO can be accessibility issue. Think of it like this: You have roadmap directions, you read one of the streets, and suddenly the entry after the street you just read changes to something else. That's confusing and will make you doubt about where you are.

@Graham87 just to double check. You don't like having this popup information to begin with, because it is too much info and/or too many any interactions ? And you would not tab through the page to open them.
But it's not less accessible then it is was before right ? If you actively decided to ignore them, at all cost, you wouldn't run into them ?

@Sadads which platform level ours ? I don't think we can solve this in MediaWiki. It's not so long since there finally is an HTML annotation to force downloads, but there is certainly nothing to force viewing. The only way is to rename all the files like @brion alluded to. But that would be more of a workaround, technically, they shouldn't look at urls to determine how to handle them. They only do this because there are some sloppy system administrators who don't properly configure the content type of files they serve.

TheDJ added a comment to T201613: Unify 'edit notices' technology stack.

@AfroThundr3007730 Usually these notices are not rly revision specific however. (protection expires, namespace/page notices are removed and/or added based on the behaviour of the audience/not the content etc etc).

TheDJ added a comment to T200818: Refreshable braille display always ends up on top of page when trying to edit.

Naively, I considered getting a physical braillex display, because how expensive can such a simple device (in the time of iPhone X'es) be? Well it seems that prices go easily 4000 euros and up !

TheDJ closed T34755: Editing problems with WikEd as Invalid.

I think we can close this ticket. The Gadgets (-extension) phabricator project usually does not deal with tickets of specific gadgets. The support forum for wikEd is well known: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Cacycle/wikEd

TheDJ added a comment to T201595: Mobile web (and Minerva desktop) does not present edit notices.

Is this about mobile apps, or the mobile frontend in browsers, or both? :)

This link disables some functionality on that same page that might possibly interfere. Do you experience the same problem there ?
