12:48:36@matthew:matrix.orgMatthewhm, and it's not just tab/shift-tab in the composer moving focus?
20:22:39@travis:t2l.ioTravisRA quick test shows that if I click on a message I have to tab through everyone's read receipts before I even get close to the composer :(

19:43:44@nolan:thewordnerd.infonolan changed their display name from Nolan to nolan.
19:45:32@nolan:thewordnerd.infonolanOne issue I keep hitting with recent web Riot is that I can't type into the text field. I think I have to click it first. Any thoughts on what might be going on there?

01:25:13@travis:t2l.ioTravisRPeople who use screen readers: if you want to give riot.im/develop a chance, I'd be grateful for your feedback. It might not be perfect, but it should be better than what's currently in the wild.

14:43:33@nolan:thewordnerd.infonolanOh, man, what happened to text labels on room buttons? Riot Web just got a whole lot more difficult to use via screen reader.
14:43:34@nolan:thewordnerd.infonolanTook me forever to find this room.
15:41:10@uhoreg:matrix.orguhoregThe labels are there if the room bar is expanded, but if the room bar is collapsed, it's using a different style of tooltip that I guess is less accessibility-friendly and doesn't expand when you tab over a room. I'm not too familiar with how screen readers work, but would it be enough to add a proper alt tag to the avatar image that contains the room name? (Currently, there is an alt tag, but it's empty.)
15:43:49@nolan:thewordnerd.infonolanOh, huh, maybe that is a thing. They do now seem to be labeled but I have no idea why. Previously I found buttons whose only accessible label was the number of unread messages. So I guess I did expand whatever I needed to, but I have no clue how I did it or what the current state is.
15:44:50@nolan:thewordnerd.infonolan OK, at least it isn't an accessibility regression, which is good. A non-empty alt attribute might help, but an aria-label would probably be more appropriate.

15:47:13@pvagner:pvagner.tkPeter VágnerI think aria-label on the div resembling the actual list item would help for both when it's expanded and collabsed room list as well. That would override accessible name calculation by the user agents (browsers in most cases). That label should say the room name and number of unread events similar to the visual presentation.
15:50:00@uhoreg:matrix.orguhoregOK, I'll open an issue for it.
