This project is particularly meaningful to me. When I started at University Communications, I didn't really know much of anything about web accessibility. After attending an accessibility conference with my team, I decided to learn more about accessibility in general, and how I could help as a web developer.
This was the first big project I took on as part of that effort. It's now used on UConn sites including:
It's a fully WCAG compliant navigation menu with the following features:
- CSS only version that supports submenus
- Handles single items, top level items as buttons, top level items as links with submenus beneath
- Fully semantic HTML
- Appropriate ARIA attributes
- A developer friendly API
