Screen Reader

Menubar component uses the menubar role and the value to describe the menu can either be provided with aria-labelledby or aria-label props. Each list item has a presentation role whereas anchor elements have a menuitem role with aria-label referring to the label of the item and aria-disabled defined if the item is disabled. A submenu within a MenuBar uses the menu role with an aria-labelledby defined as the id of the submenu root menuitem label. In addition, menuitems that open a submenu have aria-haspopup, aria-expanded and aria-controls to define the relation between the item and the submenu.

In mobile viewports, a menu icon appears with a button role along with aria-haspopup, aria-expanded and aria-controls to manage the relation between the overlay menubar and the button. The value to describe the button can be defined aria-label or aria-labelledby specified using buttonProps, by default navigation key of the aria property from the locale API as the aria-label.
