A great deal of consultation has taken place to develop the menu that will appear at the top of pages. 'Mega-menu' tags reflect different public audiences and about 50 sub-menu tags provide internally consistent browsing options. The menus are not built around organisational units and this is a radical departure from past practice which has challenged teams to rethink why and what they publish online for public access.
Brief accessibility testing with the popular JAWS screen reader indicates that the menus can be read.
A left hand SharePoint generated menu also exists and this will be discussed in a later post.
