Yes but since I always have the div first in HTML the user is likely to always be aware of it, so skipping it in a screen reader is really little different than just pressing the agree button - they have been informed of the type of content.

There is another problem with Modals on webpages. When there is a modal
created through HTML and CSS, the user can still select items in the
background by pressing tab. It seems that there is no good solution to
prevent it.

On webites that either are age restricted and/or have content that
may be
offensive to some people, often (but not as often as I'd like) there
is a
warning splashscreen that the server puts in the page if the user
has not
already agreed to see such content.

One way to do this is with a div that has absolute positioning and a
z-index that covers the content until the user clicks enter or
then it does an ajax call to lett the server the user has verified they
want to see the content and removes the div.

I would suggest a tagName "splashscreen" for this purpose. It would
the same properties as a div only it would have semantic meaning so
people using screen readers would know it is important.

An aria landmark of splashscreen would also properly distinguish it
complementary which is what I currently use for it (I would use
banner but
only one banner landmark per page is allowed).

Just a thought, I won't defend the thought but if it seems
reasonable to
the powers that be, I think it is worth it.

These splash screens do serve a different purpose than any other
