Re: [External Sender] Checkbox related issue

My first question is why would selecting a checkbox open a popup; that seems like a weird user experience that goes counter to expectations. Assuming we are stuck with that, don't add an image to the focus order. You can just make the warning icon a background image or an inline image with an alt attribute set to a null value (alt=""), then add a span to the checkbox label, containing the text "opens a popup" and hidden visually with CSS clipping. Or simply add a single visible instruction before the checkboxes that says something like "checkboxes open a popup".

But here problem is the warning icons which contains some information and close X button is present besides the checkbox.
Weather we have to provide keyboard focus to the warning icon ?
How screen reader will read like checkbox and followed by name and warning dialog ?
