This rule disallows the use of aria-hidden attribute on the body.


The aria-hidden attribute is typically used to hide elements from assistive technologies (such as screen readers) when they are not intended to be perceived by users.

When aria-hidden="true" is applied to the <body> element, it removes the entire content of the document from the accessibility tree. This means that assistive technologies will not perceive any of the content within the <body>, making the entire page inaccessible to users who rely on screen readers or other assistive technologies.

How to use

module.exports = {
  rules: {
    "@html-eslint/no-aria-hidden-body": "error",
