Screen readers

Screen readers - Bootstrap 5 & Material Design 2.0

Use screen reader utilities to hide elements on all devices except screen readers.


Basic example

Hide an element to all devices except screen readers with .visually-hidden. Use .visually-hidden-focusable to show the element only when it’s focused (e.g. by a keyboard-only user). Can also be used as mixins.


          <h2 class="visually-hidden">Title for screen readers</h2>
          <a class="visually-hidden-focusable" href="#content">Skip to main content</a>
        

          // Usage as a mixin

          .visually-hidden-title {
            @include visually-hidden;
          }
          
          .skip-navigation {
            @include visually-hidden-focusable;
          }
