Clickable Elements Behave in an Unpredictable Manner

Short Description

The function of an element should be contextually and easily determinable

Long Description

  • A wide variety of tools give developers more options in what elements look like.
  • It is important to provide programmatic as well as visual information about how an element functions so the screen reader can communicate that to the user. A screen reader cannot communicate purely visual information.
