Not labeled links on mobile page



  • hi all,
    I am a user of fog that is hoping to use the mobile fog interface and have discovered a problem.
    being blind i need to [COLOR=#141414][FONT=Tahoma]rely[/FONT][/COLOR] on alt tags and labels for links. the mobile site how ever does not have alt tags or labels on its links. is there a way i can correct this now by editing the html in my install or will I have to have it fifxed in a new release?
    thanks

While I’m sure it’s not perfect, it should be a better starting point than what was originaly available. Hopefully this has helped.[/quote]
    I will let you know after we get done with our imaging this summer, I will update it or start fresh and let you know how you did! Thank you for all you have done!

  • it would probably be easier for both to be created. the title and the alt tag that way its going to be able to convey the information no matter what.



  • will the corrections include the normal desktop site also? I made the mistake and said that it was the mobile site. when its every site.

    I’ll help Blackout catch any images that are links that do not have Alt tags describing what they do. What is easier, a title value for the link or the alt value for the image or both?



  • I really thank you for that. after some looking. it is not just the mobile page it is also the regular site. now. one question I have, is when I am managing hosts or killing or forcing tasks, the screenreader just reports “link” to me theirs no label along with that link. could that also be resolved?

  • It looks like the images are defined in [COLOR=#ff0000]<[I]your_webroot[/I]>[/COLOR][B]/fog/mobile/includes/hosts.include.php[/B], [B]mainmenu.include.php[/B] and [B]tasks.include.php[/B] for the mobile site. You could just add the alt or title tags yourself if you know any html - you just need to escape the quote characters with backslashes to make 'em PHP happy e.g.

    [B]Change lines like this from[/B] [CODE]<img src="./images/force.png" border=0 class=“task” />[/CODE]
    [B]To[/B] [CODE]<img src="./images/force.png" border=0 class=“task” alt=“Force” />[/CODE]

    A quick grep suggests that you’d only need to update it in 7 places.
