To improve keyboard accessibility, the tab order of links and navigation on all UBCMS pages and the ability to skip navigation links when tabbing will be updated. Sites with custom coding MAY be affected.
Changes to UBCMS system-wide HTML are planned for Wednesday, August 15
Wednesday morning, August 15, we plan to make a change to UBCMS sites to improve keyboard accessibility. The change will improve the tab order of links and navigation on the page and the ability to skip navigation links when tabbing.
To achieve the accessibility improvement, we are changing the order HTML for page columns is output from the server. The HTML for the left column containing the left navigation used to be output last, after the center and right columns, but will now be output first, generally keeping intact a consistent top-to-bottom, left-to-right flow in both the HTML source and the visible page. We are changing the CSS accordingly so there will be no visible difference.
To access the QA environment for testing, you must be on the UB network OR connected to the UB VPN, and can use the following URLs:
(*) In all cases, there is a thin orange bar inserted at the top of the page in QA.
Details of the change:
Requests submitted by the online forms will be triaged quickly by the UBCMS Help Desk.
Expect UBCMS outages Wednesday mornings from 4:30 to 6:30 during routine updates.
Also, consult the documentation provided by Adobe Day, the vendor of the UBCMS software.
Please note that some of the vendor instructions may not apply and some features may not be available, as the UBCMS has been modified to suit the needs of the UB community.
