I am building a WoW addon to support persons with blindness and low vision. Recently, many of my users have remarked that the CurseForge app is inaccessible because it lacks keyboard navigation.
Please add keyboard navigation for the following tasks:
Alternating between "My Addons" and "Get More Addons".
Accessing the search bar
Accessing or changing the retail/classic dropdown
Choosing an addon in the table underneath
Interacting with the context menu to fully manipulate that addon
An example of how you might do this purely with hotkeys:
Ctrl-M for My Addon
Ctrl-G for Get More Addons
Ctrl-S to enter the Search bar, and enter to leave it
Ctrl-R for WoW Retail
Ctrl-C for WoW Classic Era
Ctrl-B for WoW Burining Crusade Classic
Down/up to go to each row
Spacebar, or enter, or something else to open the context menu, triggering arrow-button navigation in the menu
If you did something like the above, then of course its beneficial to underline the first letter of each word to make the hotkey clear. Obviously this isn't for the person with blindness to see; rather, it will allow sighted people to know that the hotkey exists, so we can tell our friends about it and help them use the app.
