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 information, the kind of information a device or software would access when encountering an element, on top of the visual information provided for sighted users, about how an element functions so the screen reader can communicate that to the user. A screen reader cannot communicate information that is purely visual.
