Making accessibility simpler with ally.js

ally.js is a JavaScript library simplifying certain accessibility features, functions and behaviors. However, simply loading ally.js will not automagically make a web application accessible. The library provides certain standard functions the “web platform” should’ve provided itself, so JavaScript applications can be made accessible more easily.

An example of the things provided by ally.js is ally.maintain.tabFocus to trap TAB focus in dialogs for example, thus preventing the browser from shifting focus to its UI or to elements not contained in the dialog.

var handle = ally.maintain.tabFocus({
  context: '.dialog',
});
