An internal reviewer suggested that our Plone site should have skip links for accessibility reasons. I believe they are referring to https://www.w3.org/TR/UNDERSTANDING-WCAG20/navigation-mechanisms-skip.html which suggests that skip nav links aren't always needed. This prompted me to see if Plone was satisfying this requirement in some other way but all I have been able to find is a changelog for plone.app.layouts 2.5.8 which removed a skiplinks viewlet.
The change log says "Get rid completely of the plone.skip_links viewlet because it already doesn't worked OOTB since always and this does not follow modern a11y methods and we are dropping support for outdated ways [sneridagh]"
Can anyone shed some light on how Plone 5.x is satisfying this requirement, or perhaps provide a more detailed answer of why this is not needed that I can pass on to clients?
