How the web chat support is accessible
Chat Widget Accessibility - WCAG 2.0 Level A compliant Users utilizing a screen reader are able to navigate through the widget Users interacting solely with a keyboard can fully interact with the widget Visually impaired users can interact with the widget in a high-contrast state Hover states for all buttons and links which can visually change when hovered over or tabbed to Messages received in live chat can be read out loud and verbally differentiate between the end user and agent Keyboard Navigation With the Tab (and Shift + Tab) keys, the widget icon can now be navigated to with the keyboard for visually impaired and blind users. The is possible because the Drift Widget Icon is land marked so a screen reader will list the chat widget as a functionality on any website that has it and make it easier to navigate. Accessible Rich Internet Applications (ARIA) supplements HTML with information about what different elements on the web page are, so that interactions and widgets commonly used in applications can be passed to Assistive Technologies when there is not otherwise a mechanism. Screen readers then have additional context about the webpage and can narrate exactly what is happening
