// This is a sketch of some principles of an accessible modal - trying to keep it simple.  For a more complete demonstration, check out:

const FOCUSABLE_SELECTORS = 'a[href], area[href], input:not([disabled]), select:not([disabled]), textarea:not([disabled]), button:not([disabled]), iframe, object, embed, *[tabindex], *[contenteditable]';

const openModalBtn = document.querySelector('.open-modal');
const closeModalBtn = document.querySelector('.close-modal');
const modal = document.querySelector('.modal');
const main = document.querySelector('main');

function openModal() {
    // show the modal = 'flex';
    // Focus the first element within the modal. Make sure the element is visible and doesnt have focus disabled (tabindex=-1);

    // Trap the tab focus by disable tabbing on all elements outside of your modal.  Because the modal is a sibling of main, this is easier. Make sure to check if the element is visible, or already has a tabindex so you can restore it when you untrap.    
    const focusableElements = main.querySelectorAll(FOCUSABLE_SELECTORS);
    focusableElements.forEach(el => el.setAttribute('tabindex', '-1'));

    // Trap the screen reader focus as well with aria roles. This is much easier as our main and modal elements are siblings, otherwise you'd have to set aria-hidden on every screen reader focusable element not in the modal.
    main.setAttribute('aria-hidden', 'true');

function closeModal() {
    // hide the modal = 'none';

    // Untrap the tab focus by removing tabindex=-1. You should restore previous values if an element had them.    
    const focusableElements = main.querySelectorAll(FOCUSABLE_SELECTORS);
    focusableElements.forEach(el => el.removeAttribute('tabindex'));
    // Untrap screen reader focus
    modal.setAttribute('aria-hidden', 'true');
    // restore focus to the triggering element

openModalBtn.addEventListener('click', openModal);
closeModalBtn.addEventListener('click', closeModal);
