Hello All,

Quick question,
I've been testing a web page's accessibility with keyboard-only. I 'm having different results using Chrome and IE.
Chrome works perfectly, but when using IE, there is a loss of focus and cannot tab through the focusable items.
Have you had the same experiences? Is it related to the browser or the web page?

Thank you

Based on the description of the problem, it could be either. You may need to try to isolate the problem further. You might want to start by trying to determine which aspects of the HTML, CSS< and Javascript contribute to the problem. Others on this list may also have additional suggestions for isolating and identifying the problem so you can figure out its origin.

Thanks,
Tim

Are you using any screen reader technology? In some sites items wither hidden offscreen, the tab order will still go there, and JAWS / NVDA will still speak the item but you can't see focus borders. I have seen a few other weird tab order issues especially in sites that make use of flash.

Best wishes,

Jonathan Cohn
