Modals For Screen Readers


#1

Hello! Has anyone had success getting a custom built modal (using IX2) to be visible and catch the focus of a screen reader for sites that need to comply with specific accessibility guidelines? I have tried using different combinations of div attributes like aria-modal=“true”, tabindex="-1" and role=“dialog” but none of them seem to allow the screen reader to grab focus on the modal after it appears from the selection of a button in the navigation.

Any advice is great appreciated!
