Showing text changes
An insertion and deletion pattern we're using to show changes in a text.
On the Digital Marketplace we have used this pattern in 2 places and I've spoken to other teams within GDS who have prototyped similar designs.
See a related discussion on dropbox-paper: https://paper.dropbox.com/doc/Document-history-xF4y6zErHipG4hJwmTfMo
This pattern needs usability and accessibility testing.
Insertion background colour: #acf2bd
We have hidden text to announce inserted or removed text, adding a ',' slows the screenreader down. I think we need to understand more about how to announce inserted or deleted content in a user friendly way for screen reader users.
@laurenceberry Hi Laurence, sorry for the late response! Thanks for this. It would be interesting to see if there are other departments in government using something similar (with a similar user need). If you want to and have time, you could try to ask via the digital service designer mailing list or slack to ask for examples. That would help us understand if it could be a useful pattern for other services in gov.
