Functional specs

  • SkipNavigation onFocus scrapes the webpage looking for custom attribute dataA11ySection to create quick page links. You can extend <Heading> and <CardHeader> to contain dataA11ySection. It’s important to note that without these attributes on a page, SkipNavigation won’t work.


SkipNavigation is used to adress WCAG2.0 Criterion 2.4.1. The intent of this is to allow people who navigate sequentially through content more direct access to the primary content and common actions of the Web page.
