Today we shipped accessibility enhancements to GitHub Projects that make it easier for everyone to navigate and update their project boards. If you rely on assistive technology or prefer using the keyboard to get work done, you can now use these tools more effectively to manage your projects on GitHub.
With new keyboard shortcuts, you can efficiently move and navigate between cards and columns. Select a card or column using the enter key and move it anywhere on the board. Commit the change with enter again, or cancel it with escape. Press the ? key on any project board to review the new keyboard shortcuts in more detail.
We’re committed to building tools that empower everyone to work better together. The changes we’re announcing today are a first step toward more accessible project management on GitHub. We’d love to hear from you about other ways we can help you do your best work.
