Building a foundation for inclusivity and accessibility in LastPass by LogMeIn

LastPass has enabled keyboard navigation, updated proper color contrast and readability, and has added regions and language tags to allow users to navigate with screen readers and keyboards more easily within the vault navigation across three main browsers.

Let’s take a closer look at the vault navigation accessibility updates:

Keyboard Operation: Keyboard navigation has been enabled. While this benefits all users who prefer to navigate the web with their keyboard, it also removes access barriers for those who are unable to use a mouse and/or utilize screen readers.

Screen Reader Navigation: Users can more easily and quickly navigate to different sections of the application when using screen readers and keyboards.

Color: Proper contrast in colors has been applied according to accessibility standards. In this way, those with visual impairments will be able to more easily differentiate text and interactive elements. It will also mitigate screen fatigue for those working in bright lighting conditions.

Font: Updated font and spacing has been implemented to ensure readability for users with visual impairments.

Language: Language tags have been updated to ensure that screen readers can operate within the selected language for users with visual impairments.
