Screen readers and cookie consents
On 12th May 2020 at Screen readers and cookie consents as part of LWP May: Regulation and compliance
When screen reader users are browsing your website, are they hearing your cookie consent banner or popup? What is this experience typically like, does it comply with GDPR and how can we optimise our privacy settings and compliance popups for accessibility? In some cases, users glide past consent prompts without even being aware of them, much less needing to explicitly accept anything. At the other extreme, the prompt can be impossible to accept, resulting in an inability to use the site at all.
