It occurs to me as I look at this group that it might benefit from more organization in the group forum. Currently there are 110 topics in the forum that get displayed in no particular order. Users can search the group to hopefully find the topics they are interested in commenting on. Another strategy we can employ is using labels and buttons to filter by labels. In the right side navigation we could add something like:
Clicking on a label button would filter to only topics with that label.
Anyone can add any label they like but this would hopefully encourage people to use labels for common themes. If we are going to add a labels sidebar, what do you think the top 10 to 15 accessibility related labels should be?
Hi @scottdennis ,
There is already a Related Tags (tag cloud) widget in the sidebar. You could probably use that do guide your choices. By the way, that widget isn't accessible. It lists all tags alphabetically, and sighted users can see visually which tags are most popular based on their relative font weight. Those weights aren't communicated at all to non-visual users. Also, the less popular tags are faded out by lightening the font-weight and decreasing the opacity which significantly impedes their readability.
I like your idea of adding labels, in part just because it will provide a more accessible alternative to the Related Tags widget.
