Hidden element is focusable Accessibility Checkpoint
An element with
aria-hidden=true contains focusable content.
The hidden element and its contents are not voiced by a screen reader, but the contents contain an element with
tabindex set or active
textarea controls. The user can tab to these or focus via touch and hears only silence.
Note: Section 508 Refresh (2017) checkpoints are equivalent to WCAG 2.0 level A and level AA checkpoints.
