Here comes 1194.22 c, as in Charlie, mapping 1194.21 to iso 9241-171
Summary: We have already tweaked this one on the call. ISO goes a little further by talking about focus in the context of windows, and not just cursors in input fields (9.2.3), but the langiuage in c could be interpolated to all elements, IMO.
(c) A well-defined on-screen indication of the current focus shall be provided that moves among interactive interface elements as the input focus changes. The focus shall be programmatically exposed so that assistive technology can track focus and focus changes.
9.2.1 Provide focus cursor
Software shall provide a focus cursor that visually indicates which user interface element currently has the keyboard input focus, as well as the focus location within that element when one exists.
ISO 8.6.5 Allow assistive technology to change focus and selection: Software shall allow assistive technology to modify focus and selection attributes of user interface elements, using methods as specified in 8.6.3.
NOTE In many cases these features are supported automatically when software incorporates standard user interface elements provided by the platform software.
9.2.3 Restore state when regaining focus
When a window regains focus, software should restore the focus, selection, and active modes to the values
they had before the window lost the focus.
