Hi All,

Please let me know how do we manage focus especially on forms in an
interactive apps both on iOS and Android when the respective screen
readers are on.
1. In a login form, double tapping opens the keypad and the focus will
be on Username Field.
2. After keying the user name, when left to right swipe gesture is
used screen reader focus does not go to the next logical element which
is password.
3. The focus moves somewhere in the beginning of the app.

Please suggest how do we handle this issue as it creates lot of
usability issues.

Thanks & Regards,
