jessie: I have found your keyboard requirements very useful. I have a question: not clear about some of the test cases.
01:27:23 [MattSEA]
jg: In Web apps, you may have other elements that can respond to keyboard events. onfocus and onblur events. Even with onclick, keyboard may respond.
01:28:46 [MattSEA]
jg: the word "enabled" comes from UAAG. That's what we call elements that can respond to user input.
01:31:13 [MattSEA]
jg: When moving around in caret mode, not necessarily in a different mode.
01:33:39 [MattSEA]
jg: last time we talked, [ and ] were control-focus-left and -right?
01:34:39 [MattSEA]
kyle: Aaron suggested us to move caret over text box, and have a key to actuate text box.
01:34:42 [MattSEA]
cl: Edit mode.
01:34:48 [MattSEA]
jg: Like forms mode in JAWS.
01:34:50 [MattSEA]
cl: Right.
01:36:07 [JONGUND]
01:37:11 [MattSEA]
jessie: Now support brackets to move out of form control.
01:37:18 [MattSEA]
01:37:57 [MattSEA]
jg: What do you call when you give keyboard focus to the form control?
01:38:03 [MattSEA]
pk: That part doesn't change.
01:38:08 [MattSEA]
jg: control loses focus?
01:38:54 [MattSEA]
kyle: Will probably add edit mode in next version.
