#3558 closed Task (wontfix)

Investigate alternatives to <a href="..."> tags for accessible interactive elements.

Reported by: Martin Kou Owned by:

Keywords: Confirmed Cc:


Many interactive elements, such as toolbar buttons in CKEditor 3.0, use an <a href="javascript:void()"> tag due to the ability to get keyboard focus.

The <a href="..."> tags causes the UI elements to be pronounced as links in JAWS, which is usually inappropriate because the UI elements are in fact buttons.

We should much probably still use <a> for it, but have better ARIA support, specially for the "role" attribute.

This one is to be fixed by ARIA really, not specific element changes.

Note that <a> is used for IE6 only, and it's there for the hover effect exclusively.
