Building the Lineup platform to be accessible and available to everyone—both the system admins and the talent you're reaching out to—is important. More on this in a more official post, but over the next few months, you may notice small accessibility improvements as we iterate toward a more open and accessible Lineup experience.
We'll detail these updates in this special section in the release notes.
- Every icon button can (buttons that have no words, only icons or images) can now be read properly by a screen reader. If you'd like to read more about this, here's a handy resource about Name, Role, Value.
- We removed the alt text for all decorative images, including on this Support page. Screen readers would read this alt text (often which was just the name of the file) and it would be overwhelming for the person experiencing the page.
- Lineup Forms are fully accessible now.
- Labels and opens are now read properly.
- Skills can be navigated via a keyboard (and screen readers know what to read).
- Screen readers interpret asterisks as required fields (and we put a note at the top of the page for those not using a screen reader).
- Avatar upload is now completely accessible.
- Navigation bar improvements:
- The navigation bar (purple bar at the top of the screen) can now be tabbed through.
- All menus and submenus are accessible via keyboard.
- The focus indicator when using a keyboard has the proper amount of contrast (in fact, the focus indicator across the site has been improved for those visually impaired).
This is far from the end, and we're committed to continuing to develop all future features of Lineup to be accessible to all users.
Updates & Bug Fixes
- When filtering by "Skills is not empty" (meaning you want to see all the people with at least a single skill), you get the proper results.
- Applying a filter on gender or team status now properly works.
