Thread: Arrow key navigation for widgets.
Number of posts in this thread: 1 (In chronological order)
I have a question about how screen reader users detect that a particular
widget supports arrow key navigation. For eg: if I write a custom widget
that contains a list of messages and I want to provide arrow key navigation
through them, do I place some text offscreen telling screen readers users
about arrow key navigation or will they figure it out? I don't know of an
aria role that is relevant to this use case that will make screen readers
announce "Use your up/down arrow keys for navigation"...? For eg: In google
search, how do people figure out that they need to use the arrow key to
navigate through the different search results?
