Re: Filter Component Accessibility

Some websites actually reload the entire page when choosing things like this, and I think *that* would violate 3.2.2 because it's a full page reload, focus is lost, etc. If it's just the results section, as others have mentioned, it can be handled in a way that satisfies 3.2.2.

Subject: [WebAIM] Filter Component Accessibility

Hi All,

We have a Filters (checkboxes) section in the search result page.
When the User toggles any of the filters the result section is updated.
This change is dynamic and I believe it violates SC 3.2.2.

I checked various eCommerce sites and observed the same behaviour.

In my opinion an 'Apply Filter' button should be provided so that there is no dynamic change and the User is in control of the interaction.

I would like to know your opinion on this and also whether my suggestion makes sense.
