Quick Tip: Keyboard Trap
An interface should not trap focus so that a keyboard user cannot interact with other page elements. By using scripting to change standard keyboard navigation mechanisms (typically by setting focus to page elements), keyboard users can easily be trapped. When testing a page with the keyboard, ensure that you can interact with all page elements. Also ensure that you can navigate both forward (typically Tab key) and backward (typically Shift + Tab) key through all interactive controls.
