Did your developers add the object in a sequential manner in the design? That's the only thing that makes sense at this point.

Subject: [WebAIM] How to manage focus on touch screen devices when Screen Reader is on

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,
Mohith B. P.
