Re: SVG Anchor links - Inaccessible on IE 11 browser?

Sorry for late return, yes an example is "seat selection deck in flight reservation". In the "seat selection", we have series of seats to select which need to be keyboard and screen reader accessible.

Here, the developer used SVG element to assign hyperlinks to each seat. They are accessible on Chrome browser with JAWS reader.

But they are NOT Keyboard and JAWS reader accessible on IE 11 browser. Is there any specific workaround for IE 11?

Please advise.
