We take accessibility very seriously and continue to make improvements in compliance with WCAG 2.0 standards.

Screenreaders: We follow standard convention to ensure the website's Screenreader compliance.

Bypass Blocks: Users can "Skip To" important content by just using the keyboard. The "Skip To" menu appears when the user hits on "Tab".

When you hit the keyboard "Tab", a skip-to pin list appears on the top left side of the website. Hit "Enter" and then hit "Tab" to start navigating the pin list.

When you get to the pin you would like to read or comment on, hit "Enter". 

Once on the pin, hit "Tab" to navigate the pin elements.

Meaningful Sequence: Screen readers view content from left to right. Yellowdig follows a meaningful sequence of HTML structure to make the content easily readable by screen-readers.

Below is the keyboard tab order after skipping the pin list.
