Re: WCAG2: does a search form without a submit button fail?

I second with Birkir. On desktop I can press enter to submit the form
even if I dont have a submit button available on the page but on
mobile I cannot do that since the on screen keyboard of Safari on IOS
will not provide it. I will call it as 2.1.1 violation .

I am unaware of the same behaviour on Android and firefox.

Thanks & Regards
