Short Description

Tabs not defined and managed as tabs

Long Description

  • • Tabs, used to collect and present distinct content, are not defined as tabs - or, if defined as tabs, do not specify which tab is active. Often, tabs are defined as links which makes screen reader users think they are being taken to a different web page, whereas defining the element as a tab lets the screen reader user know they will be staying on the same web page but will be looking at different content.

Example of Issue


Define tabs as tabs and include the indication of which tab is active.
