Hi Allison and Shaw-Han
This looks really good!
Here are a few comments.
General comment: you have each bulleted point underlined which makes
it look like a link when in fact it isn't one. Confusing for readers.
* Provide keyboard-only equivalents of mouse-based actions.
Keyboard accessibility can be facilitated by providing keyboard-only
equivalents of "drag and drop" functionality. Suggested keystrokes
are included in the chart above.
** comment: there is no chart above this paragraph
* Describe how the feature works using the keyboard. A
description of how the drag and drop operation works with the
keyboard should be provided, i.e., "After selecting the object using
the tab key, move the object by pressing 'Control' in combination
with the relevant arrow key." Ideally, this information will be
visible to all users, so that persons who are sighted but don't use a
mouse will also benefit.
** comment: in email exchange today it seemed to me that you've come
to conclusion for keyboard access that the red bar would move when
the ctrl key is held down with arrow key. Should this be included in
the text here in that paragraph?
