The only requirement I would hazard to suggest is something
targeted to web based applications and content, not the browser itself.
That would be a focus on logical tab ordering (semantics and
interpretation of "logical" are a problem) or what I call linear tab
ordering. I think allowing the applications or content elements to be
accessed using only the arrow keys, "Esc", "Tab", "Space", or "Enter"
key to be highly desirable. When I test and evaluate software or web
content using this as my desired intent I find the highly accessible and
usable products provide the ability to navigate using this simple
I think this works for software as well as web based

Subject: [teitac-websoftware] General Issues: Browser Requirements
Some have suggested that we might want to impose some requirements on
browser. For example, if browsers provided more keyboard support, ATs
wouldn't have to and users who don't use AT would benefit.
Thoughts on this topic?
