After adding screen readers support to Figma prototypes last year, now it’s introduced to FigJam. With this update, screen reader or keyboard users can move focus around the canvas, as well as between different menus and screens, to create, edit, and read out content. I love how these improvements make FigJam better for everyone: “Users can now navigate FigJam files using the Tab key to jump between objects on the canvas, as well as between text nodes for efficient editing. Hold Shift-Tab to tab in reverse.”
The accessibility team also shared a few tips on making FigJam files more accessible: provide “alt” text to images, use Sections to group content, numbered lists to describe order, and underscores to communicate fill-in-the-blanks.
