Tab Order - problems with Radio buttons, and images and shapes are excluded from tab order
Apr 06, 2022
Good afternoon/Good morning!
I’ve been playing around with accessibility and Focus Order and seem to have found some strange behaviours. Whilst the Focus Order window shows all objects on the slide, not all are ‘tabbable’ in Preview mode or iwhen published to Review. This applies specifically to pictures/images and shapes. I’m surprised that these are omitted – how are pictures to be described by a screen reader using the Alt-Text content if they can't be tabbed to?
The other issue is that whilst check boxes are tabbable, radio buttons are not – they seem to be treated as a single object, with the result that only radio button 1 is highlighted when tabbed to; a subsequent tab moves to the next non-radio-button object and doesn't allow radio buttons 2, 3 and so on to be selected.
Am I missing something here? Apologies, if I am 😀
I’ve attached my test .Story file. I’m on the latest version 3.62.27443.0. I don’t have a screen reader installed, as I was more interested in the Tab Order side of things.
