Part A is missing an SC not to have autofills or changing content of preceding field.

State:
CLOSED

ATAG Part A

Description:
Sally Cain, RNIB: I might have missed it, but I can't find a note that states that it is important not to have information that once completed autofills or changes the content of a preceding field. It is important that any information entered changes only information following that element. This is because screen readers and high level screen mag users, will not know information has changed on the screen.
Using a database example, if you enter a postcode, this then can often auto completes customer information preceding that postcode field. In this case the postcode field should be before the customer information details.
