Clickable Elements are not Accessible with a Keyboard

Short Description

User can only access controls with a mouse, instead of both mouse and keyboard

Long Description

  • A screen reader user completes most navigation with keyboard commands, not a mouse.
  • If a clickable element is accessible only with the mouse, the screen reader user knows it is there, but cannot access it or any of the content it contains.
