Accessibility Fixes

Recommended Posts

Hi there, 

I am considering a third-party SS theme, but it has these Google Lighthouse Accessibility issues:

  • [id] attributes on active, focusable elements are not unique
  • some elements have a [tabindex] value greater than 0
  • Heading elements are not in sequentially-descending order
  • Links do not have a discernible name

Typically, I just tweak the front-end in whatever ways I can to mitigate these issues, because the back-end fixes are too complicated. However, I would like to learn how to address them in a way that doesn't involve removing all the design elements.

For instance, I would love to link images AND titles through to the link, but "link does not have a discernible name" usually keeps me from linking photos. "Heading elements are not in sequentially-descending order" is limiting when you are using your text boxes creatively.

What is the quickest and easiest way to address these issues (that doesn't involve a $50 monthly overlay app)?
