commented Jul 12, 2018


This PR aims to improve the aria-labels used for the navigable region landmarks and clarify their usage in the related README. Please refer to the related issue #7938 for more details.

  • changes the label "Editor toolbar" to "Editor top bar"
  • changes the label "Publish" to "Editor publish"

Worth reminding these labels are not visible and screen readers will automatically add the word "region" so they will announce:

  • "Editor top bar region"
  • "Editor publish region"

Also, adds some translators comments and clarifies the aria-label usage in the README.

Fixes #7938

Looks good to me 👍 Thank you for this improvement.

On chrome, the Gutenberg landmark region navigator (control + ´/< ) is not working correctly now in my tests, but that regression was not caused by this PR.
Edited: it turns it was just my browser being weird after a restart things look fine.
