Tab ordering on shapes

Jun 09, 2022

If we have put some content inside a shape and have ordered that shape in the focus order correctly, will the screen reader read the content in the shape because while previewing, I can see that the tab does not go to the shape which is not clickable.

Hi, Pratibha.

Thank you for reaching out!

When you're on the slide, tabbing will only work with interactive objects. With items that are not interactive, you need to press the arrow keys to navigate through them, and the screen reader should read the object's name or alternative text. Take a look at the following article for additional information:

I also want to share a few helpful resources:

I hope this helps!
