Rails helper for creating a balloon style tooltip that is WCAG compliant.

Based on the excellent CSS tooltips by Six Revisions.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'accessible_tooltip'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install accessible_tooltip


<%= accessible_tooltip(:help, label: "Help Me", title: "Dogs & Foxes") do>
  The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog.
<% end %>
