There were implementation concerns mentioned on
SAK-40600 (for the changes to the footer) may cause accessibility test regressions. Since the footer appears on most pages in Sakai, the accessibility regression might cause a negative accessibility score.
To address these concerns, the new footer needs:
- to be tested and reviewed by accessibility experts
- to be updated to address any accessibility issues found
SAK-40600 needed to be merged into Sakai master in order for the accessibility experts to be able to review and test the change.
This current Jira issue (SAK-40679) will address any accessibility concerns.
