Hi Whitney,

Thanks for the reply. I totally agree with you. In the mean time I think we have started to make progress on this internally now, but cases where the button is not being pressed due to close proximity with the keyboard functionality may be a little tricker to convince the case.

You also make the point that this is a usability issue, rather than accessibility - apologies if I am mistaken by this assumption. I am able to offer the team accessibility advice, but my feedback does not have to be considered. Even though I strongly believe they go hand in hand.

I wonder if anyone else on the list has the same problem convincing the business of usability issues that have an impact on accessibility. It's a hard case to fight, but I am open to ideas on what else I can try. Often doing a prototype of the experience is the only thing that will convince people sometimes.
