Thread: problem in adding hotKey in a button
Number of posts in this thread: 1 (In chronological order)
I am a completely visually challenged and not a professional web
designer. but I want to make my website as accessible as possible.
please help me in the following issue.
I have created some buttons which are connected to a java script. in my
webpage, the code of the button is as follows:
<button accesskey="1" id="tab1" role="button" aria-pressed="false"
but the problem is, in jaws 12, it says me 2 think per button. for the
first time when I landed to the button it says "home button pressed",
and when I press my down arrow it says, "Alt+1 button pressed".
but in jaws13 this issue is not there. if I remove <span>home</span> in
jaws 12 it says correctly "home alt+1 button pressed", but in jaws 13 it
only says "alt+1 button pressed". I have also tried including a
value="home" inside the button attribute but no luck at all! the final
solution is to remove the accessKey="1" tag. but I strongly want to keep
I know, it is a bug of jaws 12. but is there any way to get rid of it?
any help will be gladly appreciated!
sorry for my poor English.
