#10152 closed Bug (fixed)

Invalid ARIA property used on menu items

Reported by: Teresa Monahan Owned by: Frederico Caldeira Knabben
Priority: Normal Milestone: CKEditor 4.0.2
Component: Accessibility Version: 4.0.2
Keywords: IBM Cc: Damian, Satya Minnekanti


Menu items in CKEditor 4.x have an invalid WAI-ARIA attribute applied: aria-pressed

This is not a valid attribute for elements with a menuitem role as specified in

<a ....aria-pressed="false" .... role="menuitem" ... class="cke_menubutton cke_menubutton__paste cke_menubutton_off cke_menubutton__paste" >...</a>

This is a failure of WCAG 2.0 checkpoint 4.1.2. See details at:

Pushed t/10152@cksource.

In fact, it looks like this attribute has been inherited from toolbar buttons, but is not effectively in use in menu lists, even if it has the potential for being useful. Still, the right way for having it is by using the "menuitemcheckbox" role.

Anyway, there is no plugin counting on this feature, so we can safely simply remove the attribute.
