Accessibility of Read More Link in WordCamp Base Redux v2

Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: WordCamp Site & Plugins Keywords: has-patch



to (slightly) improve a11y I would like to see some assistive text for screen readers added to WordCamp base theme Redux v2:

In content.php I added

the_title( '<span class="assistive-text">', '</span> ', false )

using the already existing class .assistive-text, which hides the title when the webpage is viewed in a browser.

No changes were made in content-page.php or content-single.php, as the Read More Link isn't used when a post or page is viewed in a "single view".

To make read more links accessible in search results and archives i also added

'<span class="assistive-text">' . get_the_title() . '</span> '

in function twentyten_continue_reading_link, used in file lib/utils/twentyten-functions.php.

While the theme would need more changes to make it fully accessible (e.g. only using only one <h1> tag for every web page), I wanted to keep it backwards compatible to not break sites already using the theme. At least this patch may be a little improvement towards more a11y.

The code basically reflects the a11y team's theme patterns.
