Re: Any ARIA conforming tab panels out there in the wild?

Thanks for these examples, Glen and Léonie, I'll explore these more fully once back at a PC. I just note that on an iPad with keyboard, I run into trouble on both; Glen‘s page seems to endlessly load a „Banking & Risk Insights Interactive Demo" (not sure if the tabpanel is in there, or used for the main navigation, I think not), while on the gov.uk tab panel, when turning on VoiceOver and using arrow key navigation with option & control pressed, I can advance into panel content, but once I have activated a tab, I'm unable to arrow into the panel contents (left arrow moves focus straight to the „last updated" link after the panel) - maybe there is a command for VoiceOver on iOS to return to reading mode that I am to lazy to look up right now...
